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. If you're working with An agent to sell your home, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays selected sales in your area. It's a customary starting point in 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 logical move.

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

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

In today's adapting market, using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a factual listing price for your home. Contact us today.

All City Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will interest buyers, and we can also:
  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have found a a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Make yourself aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Cut down the chances of unknown issues that can cause sales to deteriorate
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten
So many people are blown away 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 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. Overpriced homes will not attract serious buyers, which means you waste time and (not to mention) money and still have no prospects for buying your home. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Should we paint the whole house before we sell it... Should I put in that third bathroom... Do I need to complete my closet remodel... Nearly any project has the potential to affect value in some way. But not everything will have the same return on investment. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the expenses involved.

All City Appraisal can help you with these decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent on commission will. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price -- our fees are based on efforts to complete the report. When it comes to investing in your house and setting a fair price to sell at, A professional appraisal from us will help homeowners make the smartest decisions.
