Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Eastern Appraisal Company
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from Eastern Appraisal Company actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract serious 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 its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.
In today's fluctuating market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a just listing price for your home.Contact us today
If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your property, then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes competing homes for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point in 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 move.
In our opinion, however, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.
And that's where Eastern Appraisal Company comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.
We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will bring in buyers. A polished appraisal from Eastern Appraisal Company can:
Improvements that add value to your home
In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to 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 new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.
