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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them 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 a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract 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 its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

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

Working with a real estate agent to list your home? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes comparable houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market, this is a vital step.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement, even if you've been working with an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where J. Boyles Appraisals, LLC comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from J.
