Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Appraisal Advantage, Inc

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Appraisal Advantage, Inc actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a proper listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to sell your home? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays selected homes for sale in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market, this is a really important step.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We can perform 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".

A qualified appraisal from Appraisal Advantage, Inc can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected problems that cause the process to fizzle
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements that add value to your home

Appraisal Advantage, Inc can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
