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.

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 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 realistically price 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. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

In today's evolving market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a skillful listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to list your property? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected sales in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

In our opinion, however, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to 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'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

An efficient appraisal from Elite Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you find a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's state inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected quandaries that can cause your sale to flop
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I 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. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Elite Appraisal Services appraisers have no vested interest in the amount your house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
