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.

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 sellers 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 amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

With today's changing market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a true listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to list your property, more than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes a list of sale homes in your area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market, this is a vital step.

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

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

Sound Appraisal Group, Inc can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected dilemmas that can cause sales to go up in smoke
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

Sound Appraisal Group, Inc can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Sound Appraisal Group, Inc appraisers have no vested interest in what amount the home 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.
