Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Eagle Appraisal Services
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had 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. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract serious potential 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 property is still sitting on the market.
With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a fair listing price for your home.Contact us
Working with a real estate agent to list your home? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable sales in your area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a crucial step.
But even if you've hired the most experienced real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.
That's where Eagle Appraisal Services comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".
We're also experienced in helping you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to buyers. A polished appraisal from Eagle Appraisal Services can:
Improvements that add value to your home
There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your house. Questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet 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 may not justify the time and costs involved.
