For Sale By Owner, Existing Listings or Pre-Listings Services
An independent fee appraisal gives you something concrete to show your buyer. It is a professional independent third party's evaluation of your asking price, and not just a property owner's opinion of value. Potential buyers know owners have an emotional attachment to their property and the buyer will accept more credibility from a professional appraiser's evaluation.
If you’re working with a real estate agent to list your property, more than likelythey’ll provide you with a Comparative Market Analysis (
CMA) that lists selected sales in your area as one of the first steps in determining what to set as the “Listing Price".
This step is vital if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home’s time on the market.
But even if you're working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's probably in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.And that’s where we come in. We can provide you with 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 as they're commonly called, "Comps". In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so
- Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
- Impress buyer’s with written proof of your home’s condition inside and out
- Make yourself aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
- Decrease the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through
- Eliminate the wait for the buyer or their mortgage company to get the appraisal done on their own
- Once you have a buyer you can close quickly because one important step in the process of closing is already done.
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. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal
helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which
means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts.
Improvements to add value
In addition to “how much?”, there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Questions like ''Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?”, ''Should I put in that third bathroom?'', ''Should I complete my kitchen remodel?'' Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal effect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expense.
We can step in and help make these decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report and not a percentage of the sales price. So a professional appraisal can often help homeowners make the best decisions on investing in their homes and setting a fair sales price.
As a Real Estate Investor and Builder, we have purchased and sold several million dollars in real estate. It makes good business sense to have an appraisal on hand before negotiating with a buyer.
