Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Sun Point Appraisals, 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 more than they estimated, 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 a lot 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. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

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

Working with an agent to list your house? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes a list of houses for sale in your town. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market, this is a really important step.

But even if you've been working with the most accomplished agent, it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both 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 price to sell so your house will bring in buyers. A qualified appraisal from Sun Point Appraisals, Inc. can:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have found a potential buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unexpected predicaments that can cause sales to fold
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. Questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen 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. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from Sun Point Appraisals, Inc. is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report.
