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.

So many people are blown away 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 people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. 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 decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

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

Working with a real estate agent to sell your house? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays selected sales houses in your town. It's a customary 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.

In our opinion, though, you should also get an appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where Elite Appraisal Services comes in! We'll do 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.

We're also experienced in assisting you with setting a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers. A skillful appraisal from Elite Appraisal Services can:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected obstacles that cause the process to break down
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish 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. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

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