Selling your home in Los Angeles or Orange County? Contact K1 Appraisal Services and make sure you're setting the listing price right.
If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's practically impossible for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.
While important, an appraisal is not about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, an appraisal assesses how much your home will bring on the open market.
How much is my home worth? Zillow? Trulia? Realtor.com? Redfin?
Getting an Appraisal prior to selling your home
Whether you are hiring a real estate agent to sell your home or making the decision to sell your home yourself, you should hire a licensed Appraiser to help you with the current market value of your home. You need an objective and unbiased opinion of value. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.
Not only will getting a professional appraisal help you set a astute asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can also be a very helpful bargaining tool while speaking with a potential buyer. The appraisal may also help you with deficiencies about the home that can cause delay in closing.
