Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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 a lot more than they'd 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 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 do 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 on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

In today's evolving market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a correct listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your house? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays similar sales in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

And that's where Elite Appraisal Services comes in! We can 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 house's features.

A qualified 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:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you find a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected messes 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.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

Elite Appraisal Services can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
