Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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 a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Sun Point Appraisals, Inc. 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. An overpriced house won'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 the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a factual listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your property? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable sales houses in your town. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a vital (and very common) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you've hired the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Sun Point Appraisals, Inc. can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate 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 entice buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have a prospective buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown obstacles that can cause your sale to break down
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. Questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. 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.
