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.

So many people are blown away 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 actually allowed them 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 on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

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

If you're working with an agent to list your property, then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point when deciding 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 natural move.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you've been working with the most experienced real estate agent.

And that's where Anderson Appraisal, LLC can help you! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell so your home will appeal to potential buyers. A skillful appraisal from Anderson Appraisal, LLC can:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have found a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unexpected messes that can cause sales to flop
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements that add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will 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.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
