Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from (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 much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious 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. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a skillful listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your property? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays similar houses for sale in your area.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your home. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.
