Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Orange Real Estate Appraisals

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Working with an agent to sell your house? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays a list of homes for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a standard process.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before signing the Listing Agreement, even if you are working with the most experienced agent.

And that's where Orange Real Estate Appraisals can help you! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a proper listing price for your home. Contact us today.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from Orange Real Estate Appraisals actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's price value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract interested buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Should we paint the whole house before we sell it... Should I put in that new bathroom... Should I complete my closet remodel... Virtually any project can affect value in some way. Unfortunately, not all of them have an impact commensurate with their cost. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the expenses involved.

Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price -- our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report. When it comes to investing in your home and deciding on a fair sale price, A professional appraisal from us helps you make the decisions.
