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 much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a sharp listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your house, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays similar houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign a Listing Agreement.

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

An efficient appraisal from A. M. Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have a potential buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your house's shape inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected predicaments that cause the process to deteriorate
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish 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. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We can step in and help make these important decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from A. M.
