Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Sound Appraisal Group, Inc
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Sound Appraisal Group, Inc actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract interested buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.
With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a skillful listing price for your home.Contact us
If you're working with an agent to list your property, then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing sales in your town. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit.
In our opinion, however, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from a licensed professional who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced agent.
That's where we come 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".
Sound Appraisal Group, Inc can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will interest potential buyers, and we can also:
Improvements that add value to your home
In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.
We'll help you make some of these decisions. Sound Appraisal Group, Inc appraisers have no vested interest in what amount your house sells for, unlike an agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
