Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Appraisal Network

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. If you're working with An agent to list your house, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays competing sales in your area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is really important 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 signing a Listing Agreement, even if you are working with the most experienced agent.

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

With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a sharp listing price for your home. Contact us today.

An expert appraisal from Appraisal Network can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract potential buyers, and we'll also:
  • Be a an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have found a an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Make yourself aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unexpected difficulties that can cause your sale to crumble
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. 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. Overpriced homes do not attract serious buyers, which means you waste time and money and still have no prospects for buying your home. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

Improvements to add value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Should we paint the whole house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Do I need to complete my closet remodel... Almost any project has the potential to influence value in some way. But, not all of them have an impact commensurate with their cost. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price -- your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Appraisal Network. When it comes to investing in your house and deciding on a fair price to sell at, we'll help homeowners like you make the best decisions.
