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 a lot more than they expected, 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 over-inflated opinion of their home's price value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a fair listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate 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 competing homes for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market, this is a crucial step.

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

That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will draw in potential buyers. A skillful appraisal from Appraisal Services of Brandon, Inc . can:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you find a potential buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected dilemmas that cause the process to break down
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
