Pre-Listing Appraisal Services 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.

So many people are blown away 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 these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-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. Overpriced homes will not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a proper listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.

Working with an agent to sell your home? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable sales houses in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining 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.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you have hired an experienced agent.
