Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Sound Appraisal Group, 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 a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house 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 on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

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

Working with a real estate agent to list your property? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable sale homes in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market, this is a really important step.

Even if you've hired the most accomplished real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Sound Appraisal Group, Inc comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell so your home will attract buyers. A qualified appraisal from Sound Appraisal Group, Inc can:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unexpected problems that can cause your sale to flop
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
