Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Elite Appraisal Services.

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 house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. 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 property won't attract 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 all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get an accurate listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your house? Quite often they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes similar houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market.

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

That's where Elite Appraisal Services comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

A polished appraisal from Elite Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have a prospective buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected messes that cause negotiations to fold
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet 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. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from Elite Appraisal Services is based on our efforts to complete the report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price — our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report.
