Pre-Listing Appraisal Services 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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Appraisal-One actually allowed them 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 a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a just listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to list your house? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes similar homes for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very common) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you've hired the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Appraisal-One comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your 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 appeal to buyers, and we can also:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have found a potential buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown quandaries that can cause sales to crumble
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

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. Ask yourself "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 kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
