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.

Many people are surprised 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 sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's price value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious 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 its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a sharp listing price for your home in today's changing market.

If you're working with an agent to list your home, more than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays comparable sales in your local area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a natural move.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign a Listing Agreement, even if you are working with the most experienced agent.

And that's where Sun Point Appraisals, Inc. can help you! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate 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".

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have found an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected messes that can cause sales to fold
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.
