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 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 inflated opinion of their home's value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don'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 the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

In today's changing market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a solid listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to list your home? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very logical) step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

But even if you've hired an expert real estate agent , it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

That's where Sun Point Appraisals, Inc. comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

We're also experienced in helping you decide on a realistic selling price so your home will appeal to buyers. A skillful appraisal from Sun Point Appraisals, Inc. can:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have a prospective buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your house's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown disputes that can cause sales to fold
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Home improvements that add value

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

Sun Point Appraisals, Inc. can help you with these decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
