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.

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 get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious 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 its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a solid listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

Working with a real estate agent to list your house? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes similar houses for sale in your local 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 the home's time on the market.

In our opinion, though, you should also get an appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic price to sell so your house will charm buyers. A qualified appraisal from HillsideRealEstateAppraisal can:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's state inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Reduce chances of unexpected problems that can cause sales to fizzle
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements to add value to your home

HillsideRealEstateAppraisal can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

HillsideRealEstateAppraisal can help you with these decisions. HillsideRealEstateAppraisal appraisers have no vested interest in the amount the home sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
