Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Salt Lake Appraising Company
A lot of sellers are shocked 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 get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.
In today's ever-changing market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a fair listing price for your home.Contact us today
Are you working with an agent to sell your home? Quite often you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing houses for sale in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a vital (and very common) step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.
But even if you're working with an accomplished real estate agent , it's in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.
That's where Salt Lake Appraising Company comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent 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 price to sell so your home will attract potential buyers. A polished appraisal from Salt Lake Appraising Company can:
Improvements that add value to your home
Salt Lake Appraising Company can help you answer the many 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 new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.
Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
