Getting an appraisal from 1 Hour Appraisal before putting your Fresno County home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, an appraisal is absolutely necessary. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures your home's market value.

Selling on your own?

An increasing amount of CA homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for top dollar, what you need is a skilled appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very difficult to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a sensible asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to flop

It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they originally thought. Alternatively, some people have an inflated opinion when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
