Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Sirius Appraisal Services

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious 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 property sits on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a fair listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.

Are you working with an agent to sell your property? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes similar sales in your area. It's a good 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 logical process.

But even if you've been working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Sirius Appraisal Services can help you! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Sirius Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you find a prospective buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unknown messes that can cause your sale to go up in smoke
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Ask yourself "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Many things which 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 expenses involved.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Sirius Appraisal Services appraisers have no vested interest in the amount your home sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
