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 a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers 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 decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract serious 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. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

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

Working with a real estate agent to sell your home? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes selected homes for sale in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from someone 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.

Home improvements that add value
