Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact A.M. Appraisal

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

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 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 estimated value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a sharp listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.

Working with an agent to sell your house? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays comparable sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very common) step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement, even if you've hired the most experienced real estate agent.

That's where we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your 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".

Improvements to add value

A.M. Appraisal can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.
