Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Dedicated Appraisal Services, Inc

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. If you're working with a real estate agent to list your property, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion before signing the Listing Agreement, even if you have hired the most experienced real estate agent.

That's where Dedicated Appraisal Services, Inc comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a precise listing price for your home. Contact us today.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Dedicated Appraisal Services, Inc actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you throw away time and (not to mention) 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 its mortgage.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home -- and Dedicated Appraisal Services, Inc can help with that. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Should I put in that third bathroom... Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel... Virtually any project will affect value in some way. But not everything will have the same return on investment. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. So a professional appraisal from Dedicated Appraisal Services, Inc helps homeowners like you make the decisions on investments to add value and deciding on a profit-maximizing price at which to sell.
