Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Appraisal Partners, Inc

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Are you working with an agent to sell your home? Quite often they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes a list of sales in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market, this is a crucial step.

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

That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a sharp listing price for your home in today's changing market. Contact us today.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Appraisal Partners, Inc actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't 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 to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. 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 will influence value in some way. Unfortunately, not all of them have an impact commensurate with their cost. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price -- our fees are based on efforts to finalize your report. When it comes to investing in your home and setting a fair sales price, A professional appraisal from us helps you make the decisions.
