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.

So many people are blown away 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 actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

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

If you're working with an agent to sell your property, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays comparable homes for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining 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.

In our opinion, however, you should also get an appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

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

In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell so your home will entice buyers. A professional appraisal from Sun Point Appraisals, Inc. can:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unknown disputes that can cause sales to crumble
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value

Sun Point Appraisals, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Ask yourself "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 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 your expenses.
