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 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. An overpriced property will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

With today's changing market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a precise listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to list your home? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes competing sales houses in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a standard move.

In our opinion, though, you should also get an appraisal from a licensed professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

And that's where Appraisal-One can help you! We can do 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 home's features.

We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will interest potential buyers. A qualified appraisal from Appraisal-One can:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's quality inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unknown predicaments that can cause your sale to go up in smoke
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value to your home

Appraisal-One can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We can step in and help you make these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from Appraisal-One is based on our efforts to complete your report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report. So a professional appraisal from Appraisal-One will help you make the decisions when it comes to investing in their home and settling on a fair sales price.
