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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract potential 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 its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a precise listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your property? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your area. It's a good starting point in deciding 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 logical process.

Even if you are working with the most accomplished agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

A qualified appraisal from Appraisal-One can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Cut down the chances of unknown obstacles that can cause sales to break down
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I 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. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the expenses involved.

Appraisal-One will step in and help you make these decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
