Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from HillsideRealEstateAppraisal

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 an appraisal from HillsideRealEstateAppraisal actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract serious potential 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. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

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

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your property? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays comparable sales in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

In our opinion, though, you should also get an appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.
