Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Wells & Associates Appraisal ServiceAre 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.
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:
Upgrades that improve your home's valueIn 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.
