Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Burwan Appraisal Services
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people 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 home won't attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.
Hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a sharp listing price for your home in today's evolving market.Contact us
If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes a list of homes for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point when deciding 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 standard process.
In our opinion, though, you should also get an appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.
That's where we come in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.
Burwan Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers, and we can also:
Improvements to add value to your home
There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your house. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.
We'll help you make some of these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
