Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Advance Real Estate Appraisals Inc.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Working with a real estate agent to list your home? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays comparable houses for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

Even if you have been working with the most expert real estate agent, it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so 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".

Using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a true listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market. Contact us today.

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 a professional appraisal 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 amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it... Would it help to put in that third bathroom... Do I need to complete my closet remodel... Almost any project will affect value in some way. But not everything will have the same bang for the buck. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent on commission will. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. So a professional appraisal from Advance Real Estate Appraisals Inc. helps homeowners like you make the best-informed decisions when it comes to investments to add value and deciding on a smart price at which to sell.
