Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Sterling Appraisal GroupIf you're working with a real estate agent to sell your house, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays comparable sales houses in your local area. It's a good starting point when 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're working with the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement.
In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will draw in potential buyers, an expert appraisal from Sterling Appraisal Group can:
Improvements to add valueIn addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Should I complete my closet remodel... Almost any project has the potential to affect value in some way. But not everything will have the same bang for the buck. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.
We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. An appraisal fee from Sterling Appraisal Group is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Sterling Appraisal Group. When it comes to investing in your home and settling on a fair sales price, we'll help homeowners make the most financially sound decisions.
