Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Maven Appraisal Services
Many people are surprised 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 receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.
With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a sharp listing price for your home.Contact us today
Working with an agent to sell your house? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays similar houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market, this is a really important step.
But even if you have been working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.
That's where we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".
Maven Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in buyers, and we can also:
Home improvements that add value
Maven Appraisal Services can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.
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. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from Maven Appraisal Services is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price — your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report. When it comes to investing in your home and settling on a fair price to sell at, a professional appraisal from us will help homeowners like you make the sharpest decisions.
