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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from A. M. Appraisals actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. 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. Overpriced homes do not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a just listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

If you're working with an agent to list your property, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays selected sales houses in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market.

Even if you're working with an accomplished real estate agent , it's in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.

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

In addition to helping you decide on a realistic price to sell so your home will appeal to potential buyers. A skillful appraisal from A. M. Appraisals can:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have found a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected difficulties that can cause sales to fall through
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But not everything will 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.

We'll step in and help you make these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from A. M. Appraisals is based on our efforts to complete the report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from A. M. Appraisals.
