Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Maider Appraisals

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

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers 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 much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract interested buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a correct listing price for your home in today's changing market.

If you're working with an agent to list your property, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected homes for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital (and very logical) step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We'll perform 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.

A skillful appraisal from Maider Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will interest buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Cut down the chances of unknown complications that can cause sales to crumble
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value

Maider Appraisals can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Maider Appraisals will step in and help you make these important decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
