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.

A lot of sellers are shocked 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 receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

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

Working with a real estate agent to sell your property? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of sale homes in your area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

In our opinion, however, you should also get an appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where All City Appraisal can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent 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 interest potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find an interested buyer
  • Blow away 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 problems that cause negotiations to fizzle
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home There are many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home -- and All City Appraisal can help with that. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish 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 might improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the expenses involved.
