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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Elite Appraisal Services actually allowed them 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 a lot more than it really is, 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 its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get an expert listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to list your property? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes similar sales in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very logical) step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, however, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from a licensed professional who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where Elite Appraisal Services comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate 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:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have a potential 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 disputes that can cause your sale to go up in smoke
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value

Elite Appraisal Services can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from Elite Appraisal Services is based on our efforts to finalize your report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report. So a professional appraisal from Elite Appraisal Services helps you make the best decisions when it comes to investing in their house and setting a fair sale price.
