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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an 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 will not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a fair listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your home? Quite often you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected sales in your local area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market, this is a really important step.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement, even if you have been working with an experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We'll 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 house's features.

In addition to assisting you with setting a realistic price to sell so your house will entice buyers. An expert appraisal from Elite Appraisal Services can:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have a prospective buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your house's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected difficulties that can cause sales to fizzle
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

Elite Appraisal Services can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish 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. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

Elite Appraisal Services can help you with these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
