Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.
Hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a proper listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.Contact us today
Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your home? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays a list of sale homes in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a natural move.
In our opinion, however, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.
That's where we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.
A knowledgeable appraisal from can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract potential buyers, and we'll also:
Improvements to add value to your home
There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.
