Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from First Choice Appraisal Services, Inc.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Working with an agent to list your property? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected houses for sale in your area. It's a good starting point when determining 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 natural process.

Even if you've hired the most accomplished agent, it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement.

And that's where First Choice Appraisal Services, Inc. can help you! We'll 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 home's features.

With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get an accurate listing price for your home. Contact us today.

First Choice Appraisal Services, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm potential buyers, and we can also:
  • Be a an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have found a potential buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make yourself aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unknown predicaments that can cause sales to go up in smoke

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for 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. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

Improvements to add value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it... Should I put in that third bathroom... Should I finish my kitchen remodel... Virtually any project will affect value in some way. But not everything will have an equal impact. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

We can step in and help you make these important decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent on commission will. An appraisal fee from First Choice Appraisal Services, Inc. is based on our efforts to complete your report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. So a professional appraisal from First Choice Appraisal Services, Inc. will help you make the best-informed decisions when it comes to investments to add value and settling on a fair sales price.
