Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact All City Appraisal
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from All City Appraisal actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. 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 decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract 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 home is still sitting on the market.
In today's fluctuating market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a just listing price for your home.Contact us
If you're working with an agent to list your property, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit.
However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you have been working with an experienced agent.
And that's where All City Appraisal 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 comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.
We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic price to sell so your home will draw in potential buyers. A polished appraisal from All City Appraisal can:
Improvements to add value
There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your property. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.
