Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal 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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Maider Appraisals actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious potential 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 is still sitting on the market.

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

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your property, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable sales in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement, even if you have hired an experienced real estate agent.

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

A professional 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 advice when negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected predicaments that can cause sales to deteriorate
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third 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 everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We can step in and help make these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
