Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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 home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people 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 price value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

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

Are you working with an agent to list your property? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays a list of houses for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion before signing the Listing Agreement, even if you have been working with the most experienced agent.

And that's where All City Appraisal comes in! We'll do 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".

A qualified appraisal from All City Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have found a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's quality inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected disputes that cause negotiations to deteriorate
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements that add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new 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. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. All City Appraisal appraisers have no vested interest in what amount the home sells for, unlike an agent. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
