TCO Appraisals Discusses Pre-Listing Residential Appraisals

If one thing is certain in the residential real estate market, it is that buying or selling a home is rarely without complexity.

November 07, 2016 ( – Would-be buyers and sellers of residential properties often face substantial delays or problems that derail the entire process; in fact realty industry analysts suggest that up to 32 percent of all real estate transactions encounter some sort of delay. One of the best ways to ensure that the process goes more smoothly is to obtain a pre-listing home appraisal. Todd Ortlieb, president and founder of TCO Appraisals in San Diego County, California, knows that accurate and objective property appraisals can make a huge difference when it comes to negotiating sale prices.

“A pre-listing appraisal provides useful information for the initial listing price, but there is another benefit,” says Todd. “A locally-prepared pre-listing appraisal report can be a hedge against delays that can cause the entire deal to crumble.” To learn more about the property appraisal service Todd’s company provides to clients in San Diego and surrounding communities, visit

It is fairly common that a mortgage provider or financial lender appoints an appraisal service company that may not have suitable knowledge of the local real estate markets and conditions that influence property values in the area. In these cases, such an appraisal may be dramatically less than the fair market value of the property.

Using a pre-listing valuation prepared by a local expert with intimate knowledge of the neighborhoods and market conditions that apply, it can be possible to appeal to the lender to re-evaluate the transaction. Lenders may then assign a re-appraisal to a local service provider. While this may cause slight delays, it can also work to save the deal from collapsing entirely.
