Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact A. M. Appraisals

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 home is a lot more than they'd planned, 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. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get an accurate listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your house? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays competing houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market.

Even if you're working with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement.

That's where A. M. Appraisals comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

A. M. Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue buyers, and we can also:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have a prospective buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's shape inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown problems that can cause sales to fold
  • Cut out waiting 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 more important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We can step in and help you make these important decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from A. M.
