Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Timely Appraisal Services

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people 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 price value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

In today's changing market, using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a skillful listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to list your property? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes similar sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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

That's where Timely Appraisal Services comes in! We'll do 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 home's features.

Timely Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in buyers, and we can also:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you find an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unexpected disputes that can cause your sale to deteriorate
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Timely Appraisal Services can help you with these 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 the sales price.
