Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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 actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

With today's changing market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get an expert listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to list your home? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes selected sales in your town. It's a customary starting point in 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 logical move.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement, even if you're working with an experienced agent.

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

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found an interested buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's state inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unexpected issues that can cause sales to fold
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your property. 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 finish my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
