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. If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your property, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes competing sales houses in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very logical) step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, though, you should also get an appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE 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 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.

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

Elite Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we can also:
  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have found a a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make yourself aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown messes that can cause your sale to break down
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers 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 estimated value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property 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 stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Home improvements that add value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Should I complete my kitchen remodel... Nearly any project can affect value in some way. But not everything will have an equal impact. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent on commission will. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Elite Appraisal Services. When it comes to investing in your house and settling on a fair price to sell at, we'll help homeowners make the wisest decisions.
