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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from J. Boyles Appraisals, LLC 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 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 property will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home stays 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 sitting still on the market.

With today's changing market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a fair listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to sell your property, more than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays competing sales houses in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very common) step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you've hired the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement.

And that's where J. Boyles Appraisals, LLC can help you! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate 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".

In addition to helping you decide on a realistic selling price so your home will appeal to buyers. A qualified appraisal from J. Boyles Appraisals, LLC can:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have found an interested buyer

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Ask yourself "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.
