Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Anderson Appraisal, LLC

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 home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Anderson Appraisal, LLC actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract interested buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a solid listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your property? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very logical) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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

And that's where Anderson Appraisal, LLC comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell so your house will attract potential buyers. An efficient appraisal from Anderson Appraisal, LLC can:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have an interested buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Reduce chances of unknown dilemmas that can cause your sale to crumble
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

Anderson Appraisal, LLC can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Ask yourself "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.
