Pre-Listing Appraisal Services 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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract serious 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. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

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

Are you working with an agent to list your house? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes competing 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 the house's time on the market, this is a really important step.

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

That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Sun Point Appraisals, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you find an interested buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unknown difficulties that can cause your sale to deteriorate
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We can step in and help make these important decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
