Working with a real estate agent to list your home? More than likely, they’ll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your area. It’s a customary starting point when deciding your home’s listing price. If you’re going to minimize your home’s time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a vital step. But even if you have hired the most experienced real estate agent, it’s definitely in your best interest to have a third-party’s objective opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.
And that’s where Home Appraisals, Inc. can help you! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have an accurate description of your home’s features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or “comps”.
A knowledgeable appraisal from Home Appraisals, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to buyers, and we’ll also:
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from Home Appraisals, Inc. actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home’s amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don’t attract serious potential buyers, which means you squander time and (not to mention) money and are left with no prospects for buying your home. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.
There are many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home — and Home Appraisals, Inc. can help with that. Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it… Does the tile need replacing… Should I finish my closet remodel… Practically any project can influence value in some way. But not everything will have an equal impact. A kitchen remodel may improve your home’s appeal, but it may not justify the costs you’d pay.
Home Appraisals, Inc. will step in and help make these important decisions. Appraisers don’t have any vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent on commission will. Our fees are not a percentage of your home’s sale price — our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report. When it comes to investing in your house and settling on a fair sales price, A professional appraisal from us helps homeowners make the smartest decisions.
