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.

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 a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract interested buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get an exact listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

Working with an agent to list your house? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes similar houses for sale in your town.

Home improvements that add value

A.M. Appraisal can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house.
