Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Salt Lake Appraising Company

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 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 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. An overpriced property will not attract interested 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 its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

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

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your house? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable sales in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you've hired the most expert agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Salt Lake Appraising Company comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Salt Lake Appraising Company can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have a prospective buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Reduce chances of unknown problems that can cause sales to crumble
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them 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.

Salt Lake Appraising Company can help you with these important decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent do. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
