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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, 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. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. 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 property sits on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a factual listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.

Are you working with an agent to sell your property? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes similar homes for sale in your town. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very logical) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, however, you should also get an appraisal from a licensed professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

And that's where Elite Appraisal Services comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your house'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 charm buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's state inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected quandaries that can cause sales to go up in smoke
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements that add value to your home

Elite Appraisal Services can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new 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 all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We can step in and help make these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from Elite Appraisal Services is based on our efforts to finalize your report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — our fees are based on efforts to finalize your report. When it comes to investing in your home and settling on a fair sales price, a professional appraisal from us helps homeowners make the smartest decisions.
