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 much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from Maider Appraisals actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a factual listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.

Working with an agent to list your house? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable sales in your town.
