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 more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract 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. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

In today's adapting market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a correct listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your property? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays similar sale homes in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a standard process.

In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

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 comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

Sound Appraisal Group, Inc can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in buyers, and we can also:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's shape inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unexpected difficulties that can cause sales to crumble
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements that add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
