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 home is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a solid listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to sell your house, more than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays comparable sales in your area. It's a customary starting point in deciding 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.

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

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

We're also experienced in helping you decide on a realistic selling price so your home will bring in potential buyers. A knowledgeable appraisal from Elite Appraisal Services can:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have a prospective buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your home's state inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Cut down the chances of unknown messes that can cause your sale to crumble
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements that add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Our fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.

Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report.
