Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from All City Appraisal

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 much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from All City Appraisal actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not 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 sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

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

Working with an agent to sell your house? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays comparable sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point when determining 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 standard move.

In our opinion, however, you should also get an appraisal from a licensed professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

All City Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have a prospective buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected predicaments that cause negotiations to deteriorate
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements that add value to your home
