Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Appraisal Services of Brandon, Inc .

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 home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get an accurate listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to list your home, more than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays similar sale homes in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very common) step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you are working with the most accomplished real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Appraisal Services of Brandon, Inc . can help you! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

Appraisal Services of Brandon, Inc . can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will interest buyers, and we can also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you find a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unknown issues that cause the process to break down
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

We'll help you make some of these important 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 your home's sale price.
