Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Appraisal Associates, Inc..

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Working with a real estate agent to list your home? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays similar sales houses in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market.

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

That's where Appraisal Associates, Inc. comes in! 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 house's features.

In today's evolving market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a solid listing price for your home. Contact us today.

An expert appraisal from Appraisal Associates, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in buyers, and we'll also:
  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find a potential buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unknown dilemmas that can cause your sale to flop
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from Appraisal Associates, Inc. actually allowed these people 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. An overpriced house will not attract serious buyers, which means you throw away time and (not to mention) money and are left with no prospects for buying your home. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Should I finish my closet remodel... Nearly any project has the potential to influence value in some way. But, not all of them have an effect commensurate with their cost. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent on commission will. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. A professional appraisal from Appraisal Associates, Inc. will help you make the best-informed decisions on investments to add value and deciding on a smart price at which to sell.
