Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact ASAP Appraisal Group

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from ASAP Appraisal Group actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract interested buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And 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 a real estate agent to sell your home? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes similar sales in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where ASAP Appraisal Group comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both 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".

In addition to helping you decide on a realistic selling price so your home will appeal to buyers. A skillful appraisal from ASAP Appraisal Group can:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's condition inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown problems that can cause sales to deteriorate
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

ASAP Appraisal Group can help you with these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from ASAP Appraisal Group is based on our efforts to complete your report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price.
