Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from

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 more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us 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 inflated opinion of their home's price value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract potential 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 all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

In today's evolving market, using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a sharp listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to list your home? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected sales in your area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market, this is a crucial step.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement, even if you've hired an experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have an interested buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your house's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unknown headaches that can cause your sale to fall through

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.
