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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, 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 inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract serious potential 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 on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a correct listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to sell your property? Quite often you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays competing sale homes in your local area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, though, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from a professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where Sirius Appraisal Services comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so both 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.

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

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating 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
  • Cut down the chances of unknown problems that can cause sales to deteriorate
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
