Getting an appraisal from SafeValues Inc. before putting your Redondo Beach home on the market saves you time and money.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is absolutely necessary. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and 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 get a handle on real estate market forces.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.
