Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a factual listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your house, more than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes competing sales in your local area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market, this is a vital step.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from a licensed professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to listing your house - 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 you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

A qualified appraisal from Sirius Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have a prospective buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your house's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Reduce chances of unexpected headaches that can cause your sale to crumble
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements to add value to your home

Sirius Appraisal Services can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your expenses 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. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from Sirius Appraisal Services is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price — our fees are based on efforts to complete your report. When it comes to investing in your house and setting a fair sales price, a professional appraisal from us will help homeowners like you make the wisest decisions.
