Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from .

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

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 people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

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

If you're working with an agent to sell your home, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very logical) step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, however, you should also get an appraisal from a professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

And that's where can help you! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

A polished appraisal from can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown predicaments that can cause sales to flop
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home There are many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home -- and can help with that. Ask yourself "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for.
