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 house is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

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

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 a list of sale homes in your area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

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 signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Appraisal Associates & Consultants, Inc. comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

An expert appraisal from Appraisal Associates & Consultants, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you find a prospective buyer
  • Wow potential 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 a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected dilemmas that cause the process to fold
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance 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 "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to 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. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the expenses involved.

We can step in and help make 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 your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
