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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house 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. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious 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. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a correct listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your house? Quite often they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of homes for sale in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a vital step.

Even if you've hired the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Sirius Appraisal Services comes in! We'll 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 home's features.

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

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected complications that cause the process to crumble
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your house. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. 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 make these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale 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. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price — your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Sirius Appraisal Services.
