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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them 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. An overpriced property won't attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

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

Working with a real estate agent to sell your property? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes competing sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point in determining 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 before signing a Listing Agreement.

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

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
