Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc. actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract interested buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a proper listing price for your home in today's changing market.

Working with a real estate agent to list your home? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of sales in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining 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 standard move.

But even if you have hired the most accomplished agent, it's in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

That's where Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc. comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers. A polished appraisal from Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc. can:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's shape inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unknown disputes that can cause your sale to fold
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc. can help you with these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
