Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Netterville Appraisal Service
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, 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 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 home 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 its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.
In today's fluctuating market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a true listing price for your home.Contact us today
Are you working with an agent to list your house? Quite often you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very logical) step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.
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 prior to signing a Listing Agreement.
That's where we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".
A qualified appraisal from Netterville Appraisal Service can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm potential buyers, and we'll also:
Home improvements that add value
In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole 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. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.
We'll help you make some of these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
