Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Sirius Appraisal Services.

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 house is much more than they thought, 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. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. 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 property is sitting still on the market.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get an accurate listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your house, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point in 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 vital step.

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

And that's where Sirius Appraisal Services comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your 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".

Sirius Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will draw in potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unknown disputes that can cause sales to deteriorate
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house There are many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home -- and Sirius Appraisal Services can help with that. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But, 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.

Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
