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 had planned, so investing in an appraisal from Maider Appraisals actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's price 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 potential 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 property sits on the market.

In today's adapting market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the top way to get an expert listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your property, then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes a list of houses for sale in your area. It's a good starting point in determining 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 logical move.

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

And that's where Maider Appraisals can help you! We can perform 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".

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

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you find a potential buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your home's state inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown quandaries that cause the process to break down
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your home. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

We can step in and help make these important decisions. Maider Appraisals appraisers have no vested interest in the amount your home sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from Maider Appraisals is based on our efforts to complete your report, and are not a percentage of the sales price.
