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 a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them 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 price value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a just listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your home, more than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected sales in your town. 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 process.

In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic price to sell so your home will appeal to potential buyers. An expert appraisal from Sirius Appraisal Services can:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you find a prospective buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unknown problems that can cause sales to flop
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your home. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Sirius Appraisal Services can help you with these important decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
