Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Sound Appraisal Group, Inc

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 house is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of home 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. Overpriced homes don'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 home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a correct listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

Working with an agent to sell your house? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market, this is a crucial step.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to listing your property - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

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

We're also experienced in helping you decide on a realistic selling price so your home will entice potential buyers. A qualified appraisal from Sound Appraisal Group, Inc can:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have found a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's condition inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Decrease the chances of unknown predicaments that cause negotiations to break down
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your home. Questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll step in and help you make these important decisions. Sound Appraisal Group, Inc appraisers have no vested interest in what amount your house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
