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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Maider Appraisals actually allowed these sellers 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 value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

In today's adapting market, using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a proper listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your house, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing houses for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point when deciding 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 natural process.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing 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 real estate agent.

That's where Maider Appraisals comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will interest buyers. A skillful appraisal from Maider Appraisals can:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have an interested buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected dilemmas that cause negotiations to go up in smoke
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the whole 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. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Our fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
