Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact (208) 782-0233

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 expected, 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 over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

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

If you're working with an agent to sell your home, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes a list of sales houses in your town. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital (and very logical) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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

That's where (208) 782-0233 comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Improvements to add value
