Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from 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 an appraisal from Sound Appraisal Group, Inc actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much 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 do not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a correct listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.

Working with an agent to sell your house? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes comparable sale homes in your local area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very common) step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement, even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your home'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 house will intrigue buyers. A polished appraisal from Sound Appraisal Group, Inc can:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you find an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unexpected predicaments that can cause sales to flop
  • 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 house. Ask yourself "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen 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 may improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.

We'll step in and help make these important decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
