Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Appraisal Care

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 more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Appraisal Care actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a just listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your home? Quite often you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing sales in your town. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

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

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

We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will bring in buyers. An expert appraisal from Appraisal Care can:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unknown difficulties that cause the process to go up in smoke
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value to your home

Appraisal Care can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Ask yourself "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.
