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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers 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 price value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

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

If you're working with an agent to list your house, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays selected homes for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market, this is a really important step.

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

And that's where Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc. comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate 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 decide on a realistic price to sell so your house will attract buyers. A skillful appraisal from Appraising Greater Orlando, Inc. can:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have a prospective buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your house's shape inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unknown obstacles that can cause your sale to fold
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "Should we paint the entire 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 affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the expenses involved.
