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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get an accurate listing price for your home in today's changing market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your property, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected sales in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very common) step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you're working with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign a Listing Agreement.

And that's where HillsideRealEstateAppraisal can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell so your house will charm buyers. A skillful appraisal from HillsideRealEstateAppraisal can:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unexpected difficulties that can cause your sale to crumble
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third 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. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
