Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal 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 much more than they thought, 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. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract 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 the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a precise listing price for your home in today's changing market.

Are you working with an agent to list your home? Quite often they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes a list of houses for sale in your town. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital (and very common) step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

But even if you are working with the most expert real estate agent, it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your 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".

An efficient appraisal from Lundquist Appraisals & Real Estate Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have a prospective buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Reduce chances of unknown quandaries that can cause your sale to fizzle
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things that 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 your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.

Lundquist Appraisals & Real Estate Services can help you with these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
