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 house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not 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 sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get an expert listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your home? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays selected sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

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

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

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown issues that can cause sales to go up in smoke
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements that add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third 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 not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.
