Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Advantage Appraisal Services, LLC

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them 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 price 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 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. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

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

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your property, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes a list of sales houses in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a vital (and very logical) step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing a Listing Agreement, even if you've been working with an experienced agent.

And that's where Advantage Appraisal Services, LLC can help you! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

Advantage Appraisal Services, LLC can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?"

While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.
