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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from Sirius Appraisal Services 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 estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

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

Working with an agent to sell your property? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes a list of houses for sale in your area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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

And that's where Sirius Appraisal Services can help you! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

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

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you find a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's shape inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected issues that cause the process to crumble
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

We can step in and help you make these decisions. Sirius Appraisal Services appraisers have no vested interest in the amount the home sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from Sirius Appraisal Services is based on our efforts to complete the report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price.
