What Is An Appraisal?

A real estate appraisal is a professional appraiser’s opinion of market value of the property in question at a specified date in time – whether it be in the past (retrospective) or the present. The appraiser serves the important role of providing an objective, impartial, and unbiased opinion about the value of the property. The preparation of an appraisal involves research into appropriate market areas, the assembly and analysis of information pertinent to a property and the knowledge, experience, and professional judgment of the appraiser.

We specialize in residential real estate appraisals for the following property types: single-family homes, condominiums, multi-family homes, twin homes, manufactured homes, modular homes and vacant land.

Why Do I Need An Appraiser?

There are several key times when dealing with property that you may need a San Diego property appraiser like:


When Buying a Home

If you want to make an offer on a property it is important to ensure the property is worth the amount of money you are willing to pay. Oftentimes the lending institution requires a professional appraisal to be done on the home


When Selling Your Home

An appraisal of the property’s value is an important step in determining your home’s listing price. You want to price your home right rather than overpricing it and it sitting on the market for months


When You Need a Loan

If you are seeking other type of loans you could place your home as the primary collateral. If you do this it will be necessary to have a current valuation of the home by a professional appraiser
