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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from Appraisal-One actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a proper listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your house, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays competing sales houses in your 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.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement, even if you have hired the most experienced agent.

And that's where Appraisal-One comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have found an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's quality inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unknown dilemmas that can cause your sale to go up in smoke
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.
