Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Northern Arizona Appraisal, 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 house is a lot more than they expected, 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. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract serious 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. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a factual listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to list your property? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable sales houses in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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

That's where we come in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

A professional appraisal from Northern Arizona Appraisal, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Reduce chances of unexpected disputes that can cause your sale to fizzle
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements that add value to your home

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