Need a pre-listing appraisal?

Working with an agent to list your property? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays selected sales in your area. It’s a good starting point in determining your home’s listing price. This step is vital if you’re going to minimize your house’s time on the market and maximize your profit.

Even if you’re working with the most experienced agent, it’s in your best interest to also have a third-party’s objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement.

And that’s where APPRAISALS ONLY 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”.

In today’s fluctuating market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a solid listing price for your home. Contact us today.

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have a an interested buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your house’s condition inside and out

  • Cut down the chances of unknown messes that can cause your sale to flop
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer’s appraisal to have assurance the deal will close

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from APPRAISALS ONLY actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home’s price value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. In the meantime, you’re stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home — and APPRAISALS ONLY can help with that. Should we paint the whole house before we sell it… Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel… Virtually any project has the potential to influence value in some way. But not everything will have an equal impact. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We’re here for you. APPRAISALS ONLY appraisers have no vested interest in the amount the home sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home’s sale price. When it comes to investing in your home and settling on a fair sales price, A professional appraisal from us will help homeowners make the smartest decisions.
