Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Appraisal-One

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

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from Appraisal-One actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's price value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract serious potential 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. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

In today's changing market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get an expert listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to sell your house? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays comparable sale homes in your local area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market, this is a vital step.
