Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Loving Appraisals.
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us 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 amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won'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 its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.
With today's changing market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a Certified and Licensed Appraiser such as Tammi to get an expert listing price for your home.Contact us today
Are you working with a real estate agent to list your house? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market.
In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced agent.
And that's where Loving Appraisals can help you! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".
Loving Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm potential buyers, and we can also:
Home improvements that add value
In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.
We'll step in and help make 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 complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
