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.

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 these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get an exact listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your property? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable sales in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you've been working with an expert agent , it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Appraisal Services of Brandon, Inc . comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.
