By admin • September 22nd, 2014

Being a homeowner that is ready to list their home for sale in Murrieta or Temecula CA, you should ask yourself if you need to get a pre-listing appraisal from a state licensed appraiser to compare to a Realtors findings, or only the advice of a Realtor? Sometimes the appraiser will use only closed sales and that doesn’t get the whole picture. We use close sales and analyze active listings, pending sales and data trends also. This would help indicate pockets of homes that are increasing in value, getting you the best price for your home.

Having an appraiser to do a pre-listing appraisal and also represent you as an advocate of your home when you sell might be the best idea.

If the pre-listing appraiser is available and involved when the buyers or banks appraiser comes through would be a great idea. The pre-listing appraiser or consultant will be able to communicate with the buyers appraiser, appraiser to appraiser in the same format or guidelines and using the same appraisal forms and techniques. Almost like speaking the same language as a local appraiser to another.
