Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal 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 a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

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

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your home? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

Even if you're working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

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

(208) 782-0233 can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you find a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's quality inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unknown difficulties that cause the process to fall through
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.
