Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Appraisal Services of Brandon, Inc .

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 home is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from Appraisal Services of Brandon, Inc . actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, 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 a true listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, more than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays similar sales houses in your local area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market.

Even if you're working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before signing the Listing Agreement.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we 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.
