Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much 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 home will not attract potential 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 its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

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

Working with a real estate agent to list your house? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes competing sales houses in your local area. It's a good starting point when 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 process.

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

That's where Sirius Appraisal Services comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

In addition to helping you decide on a realistic price to sell so your home will interest buyers. A knowledgeable appraisal from Sirius Appraisal Services can:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have found a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's quality inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected problems that cause the process to go up in smoke
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

Sirius Appraisal Services can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

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

Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price — our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Sirius Appraisal Services.
