Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from 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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, 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. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will 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 its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

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

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your property, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes similar homes for sale in your town. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing a Listing Agreement, even if you are working with the most experienced real estate agent.

And that's where Appraisal House, Inc. can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Ask yourself "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the expenses involved.
