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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from Elite Appraisal Services actually allowed them 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 price value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract potential 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. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a just listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to list your home? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

But even if you're working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to 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 real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

Elite Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue buyers, and we can also:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you find an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected dilemmas that can cause your sale to fall through
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property There are many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home -- and Elite Appraisal Services can help with that. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?"

Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
