Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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 home is much more than they thought, 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 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 home will not 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. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a just listing price for your home in today's changing market.

Are you working with an agent to list your house? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable sales in your town. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a vital step.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement, even if you've been working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where HillsideRealEstateAppraisal comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

We're also experienced in helping you decide on a realistic price to sell so your house will attract buyers. A knowledgeable appraisal from HillsideRealEstateAppraisal can:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you find 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 that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown complications that cause negotiations to go up in smoke
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.
