Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Hillside Appraisal.

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 home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal 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 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. 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. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

With today's changing market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get an expert listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to list your house? Quite often they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes a list of sales houses in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very logical) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Hillside Appraisal comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

A knowledgeable appraisal from Hillside Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will interest buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have found a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's state inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unexpected dilemmas that can cause your sale to crumble
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on 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 expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

Our fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
