Pre-Listing Appraisal Services 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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a solid listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your property? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes comparable houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market.

Even if you've been working with the most expert real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where HillsideRealEstateAppraisal comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate 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".

A skillful appraisal from HillsideRealEstateAppraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you find a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected difficulties that cause negotiations to go up in smoke
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
