Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Lundquist Appraisals & Real Estate 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 more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people 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 amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

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

If you're working with an agent to sell your property, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays a list of sale homes in your local area. It's a good starting point when deciding 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 crucial step.

In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing 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.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

Lundquist Appraisals & Real Estate Services can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the 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 everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.
