Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from J. Boyles Appraisals, LLC

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 a professional appraisal from us 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 decide on a realistic price for 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. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get an exact listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to sell your house, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays similar sales houses in your area. It's a customary 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 standard process.

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 are working with the most experienced real estate agent.

And that's where J. Boyles Appraisals, LLC can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

J. Boyles Appraisals, LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will draw in buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress 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 unexpected obstacles that cause negotiations to go up in smoke
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.
