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 a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people 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. An overpriced property will not attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

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

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your property, then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays a list of sales houses in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding 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 logical process.

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

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

A knowledgeable appraisal from Sirius Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have found a potential buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your home's state inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unexpected quandaries that can cause your sale to fold
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the 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 have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

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