Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Anderson Appraisal, LLC

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, 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. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious 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 sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

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

Are you working with an agent to list your property? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes competing sales in your area. It's a good starting point when 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 logical move.

Even if you've hired the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

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

In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will bring in buyers. A skillful appraisal from Anderson Appraisal, LLC can:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected disputes that can cause sales to fall through
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete 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 may improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.
