Realvals is a home appraisal company located in San Clemente, California.
Whether you’re a broker looking for a pre-listing value, a lender trying to close a loan, an estate that needs a retrospective value, or someone wanting to know what their property is worth, we are here for you.
Realvals was started by Austin Fernald, after working for both an MAI/SRA and an SRA for many years.
Over the years I was exposed to the full gamut of both residential and commercial properties and this provided me with the experience needed to go off on my own and do the same for you.
Single family homes, mobile homes, condos, vacant land, 2-4 unit properties, complex, non-complex, any size; we’re here to help you find the real value of your property.
What can you expect from us?
- Quality Reports
- Fast Turn Times
- Real Values
I’m not like most of the real estate appraisers out there with an average age of 60; I’m closer to half of that. I guess you could also say that I bring a much needed new and fresh perspective to the industry.
My name is Austin Fernald, and I’m the founder and principal appraiser at Realvals.
I’ve always had an affinity for real estate. Growing up with parents that were always buying houses, updating, and reselling them to move on to a new house and do it all over again, undoubtedly had a positive effect on me.
I’m a guy who enjoys driving around random neighborhoods looking for interesting houses, only to come home and look them up on MLS so I can learn all about them.
So why am I not a broker then?
Well, that’s because selling real estate has never really interested me and having time to spend with family outside of work is something I value more than money (Ha ha). Plus, I love the analytical side of appraising and the hundreds of more properties I get to see in a given year.
But, enough about me.
