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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, 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 inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. 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 property is sitting still on the market.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a proper listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your home? Quite often they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes comparable homes for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining 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 natural process.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

And that's where Sound Appraisal Group, Inc can help you! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

A qualified appraisal from Sound Appraisal Group, Inc can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's state inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected quandaries that cause the process to fall through
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the expenses involved.
