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 home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people 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 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. Overpriced homes will not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

In today's changing market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a correct listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your home? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes selected houses for sale in your town. It's a good starting point in 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.

But even if you are working with an experienced real estate agent , it's in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.

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

  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Reduce chances of unknown problems that can cause sales to fold
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.
