Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Appraisal Associates & Consultants, 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 a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from Appraisal Associates & Consultants, Inc. actually allowed these sellers 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. An overpriced house won't 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 the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a precise listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

Working with a real estate agent to list your house? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes similar sale homes in your area. It's a customary starting point when 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.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from a licensed professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where we come 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 comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic price to sell so your house will charm buyers. An efficient appraisal from Appraisal Associates & Consultants, Inc. can:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's state inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unknown headaches that cause negotiations to go up in smoke
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It might 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.
