Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Byland Real Estate Appraisal
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal 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 inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.
With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get an expert listing price for your home.Contact us
Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your property? Quite often they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes competing houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a standard move.
Even if you are working with the most expert agent, it's in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement.
And that's where Byland Real Estate Appraisal can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.
A polished appraisal from Byland Real Estate Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to buyers, and we'll also:
Improvements to add value to your home
Byland Real Estate Appraisal 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 entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third 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. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.
We'll help you make some of these decisions. Byland Real Estate Appraisal appraisers have no vested interest in the amount your house sells for, unlike an agent. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
