Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from All City Appraisal

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 actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract serious 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. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

In today's evolving market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a sharp listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your home? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected homes for sale in your town. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market, this is a really important step.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you are working with the most experienced agent.

  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
