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 home is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home 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. An overpriced property will not 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. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a correct listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

If you're working with an agent to sell your house, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes similar houses for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

Even if you have hired the most expert real estate agent, it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Elite Appraisal Services can help you! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell so your home will appeal to buyers. A professional appraisal from Elite Appraisal Services can:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find an interested buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unexpected dilemmas that can cause your sale to go up in smoke
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire 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, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Elite Appraisal Services appraisers have no vested interest in the amount your house sells for, unlike an agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
