Pre-Listing Appraisal Services 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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from Elite Appraisal Services actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don'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 the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a correct listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to sell your home? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes comparable sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market.

But even if you have been working with the most accomplished real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

A knowledgeable appraisal from Elite Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you find a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unknown problems that can cause sales to flop
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements to add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your home. Questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete 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. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll step in and help you make these important decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
