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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, 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. An overpriced property will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

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

Working with an agent to list your property? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes competing sale homes in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a crucial step.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement, even if you are working with the most experienced agent.

And that's where HillsideRealEstateAppraisal 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 home's features.

A skillful appraisal from HillsideRealEstateAppraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have found a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your house's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing

Improvements to add value

HillsideRealEstateAppraisal can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before 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 third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

Our fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
