Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from ASAP Appraisal Services, Inc.

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 more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a fair listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to list your house, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays a list of houses for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market, this is a crucial step.

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

That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

ASAP Appraisal Services, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers, and we can also:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you find a prospective buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your house's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected quandaries that cause the process to flop
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen 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. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
