Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from 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 home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth a lot 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. Overpriced homes do not attract serious 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 its 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 correct listing price for your home in today's changing market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays a list of sales in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from a professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to listing your property - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where Appraisal-One comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Appraisal-One can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue buyers, and we can also:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you find an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's state inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected headaches that can cause your sale to break down
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your home. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.

Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price — our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report.
