Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Price Appraisals & Realty, LLC

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 home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people 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 estimated value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a solid listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your property, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes similar houses for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market.

But even if you've been working with the most expert agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

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

We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will bring in buyers. A polished appraisal from Price Appraisals & Realty, LLC can:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you find a prospective buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your house's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected complications that can cause sales to deteriorate
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your property. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the 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. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

Price Appraisals & Realty, LLC can help you with these decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
