Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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 home is a lot more than they'd 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. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

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

Are you working with an agent to list your property? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays similar sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very common) step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you've been working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where HillsideRealEstateAppraisal comes in! We can perform 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".

We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers. An expert appraisal from HillsideRealEstateAppraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have found an interested buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected dilemmas that can cause your sale to break down
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen 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 your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

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