Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Wells & Associates Appraisal Service

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 an agent to list your home? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes competing sales in your town. It's a customary starting point in 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 process.

Even if you're working with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Wells & Associates Appraisal Service comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

In today's ever-changing market, using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a factual listing price for your home. Contact us today.

A knowledgeable appraisal from Wells & Associates Appraisal Service can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue buyers, and we'll also:
  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your house's condition inside and out

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Wells & Associates Appraisal Service actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much 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 won't attract interested buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Should we paint the entire house before we sell it... Does the carpet need replacing... Do I need to complete my closet remodel... Practically any project will affect value in some way. Unfortunately, not all of them have an impact commensurate with their cost. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent on commission will. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price -- our fees are based on efforts to complete your report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Wells & Associates Appraisal Service. When it comes to investing in your home and settling on a fair sales price, we'll help homeowners like you make the smartest decisions.
