Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from 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.

Many people are surprised 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. Others have an over-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 property will not attract serious 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 its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a correct listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to sell your house, more than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected sales in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding 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 vital step.

Even if you've hired the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the 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 a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

We're also experienced in helping you decide on a realistic price to sell so your home will entice potential buyers. A qualified appraisal from Sound Appraisal Group, Inc can:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unknown headaches that can cause sales to fold
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.
