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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Sirius Appraisal Services actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not 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 in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a skillful listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to list your home? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays comparable homes for sale in your area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very common) step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced 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 have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
