Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Appraisal Service and Solutions, LLC

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 an agent to list your property? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays competing sale homes in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from a licensed professional who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where Appraisal Service and Solutions, LLC comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get an accurate listing price for your home in today's changing market. Contact us today.

An expert appraisal from Appraisal Service and Solutions, LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in potential buyers, and we'll also:
  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unknown issues that can cause sales to fold
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance 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 expected, 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 value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract potential buyers, which means you throw away time and money and are left with no prospects for buying your home. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Improvements to add value

There are many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home -- and Appraisal Service and Solutions, LLC can help with that. Should we paint the whole house before we sell it... Does the carpet need replacing... Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel... Almost any project has the potential to affect value in some way. But not everything will have an equal effect. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Appraisal Service and Solutions, LLC. When it comes to investing in your home and deciding on a fair sales price, we'll help you make the sharpest decisions.
