Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Marketwise Appraisal, LLC

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Are you working with a real estate agent to list your property? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing homes for sale in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you've been working with the most experienced real estate agent.

And that's where Marketwise Appraisal, LLC can help you! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get an expert listing price for your home. Contact us today.

An efficient appraisal from Marketwise Appraisal, LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will draw in potential buyers, and we'll also:
  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you find a an interested buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your house's quality inside and out
  • Make yourself aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown issues that can cause sales to flop
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, 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. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract potential buyers, which means you waste time and (not to mention) money and still have no offers. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Should we paint the entire house before we sell it... Does the fence need replacing... Should I finish my closet remodel... Almost any project will affect value in some way. But not everything will have the same return on investment. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent on commission will. An appraisal fee from Marketwise Appraisal, LLC is based on our efforts to complete your report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. When it comes to investing in your home and setting a fair price to sell at, a professional appraisal from Marketwise Appraisal, LLC will help you make the best decisions.
