Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Active Appraisal Services, Inc.If you're working with a real estate agent to list your house, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays competing sales houses in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining 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 move.
Even if you've hired the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.
Active Appraisal Services, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm potential buyers, and we can also:
Improvements to add value to your homeIn addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Should we paint the entire house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Should I finish my kitchen remodel... Nearly any project will influence value in some way. But each thing affects marketability differently. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.
We'll step in and help make these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. A professional appraisal from Active Appraisal Services, Inc. helps homeowners like you make the wisest decisions on investments to add value and deciding on a profit-maximizing sales price.
