Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from HillsideRealEstateAppraisal.

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 home is much more than they had planned, 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. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

With today's changing market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a factual listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to sell your home? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays a list of sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point in determining 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 natural move.

In our opinion, however, you should also get an appraisal from a professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where HillsideRealEstateAppraisal comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

HillsideRealEstateAppraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have an interested buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's state inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected predicaments that cause the process to go up in smoke
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new 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. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

HillsideRealEstateAppraisal can help you with these important 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 complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
