Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from 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 house is much more than they had 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 over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract 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. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

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

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your home? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected houses for sale in your area. It's a good starting point when deciding 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 standard process.

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

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

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

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown predicaments that can cause your sale to break down
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from A. M.
