Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Appraisal House, 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 home is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from Appraisal House, Inc. actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

With today's changing market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a correct listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to list your house? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very common) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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

And that's where Appraisal House, Inc. can help you! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell so your home will entice buyers. A qualified appraisal from Appraisal House, Inc. can:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have found a potential buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Decrease the chances of unknown predicaments that cause the process to go up in smoke
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your house. Questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.
