Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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 them 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 a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. 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 is still sitting on the market.

In today's changing market, using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a factual listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your house? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable homes for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a logical process.

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

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

An expert appraisal from Appraisal Services of Brandon, Inc . can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have found a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown issues that can cause your sale to fall through
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We can step in and help make these decisions. Appraisal Services of Brandon, Inc . appraisers have no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
