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 home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from J. Boyles Appraisals, LLC 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 over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value 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 home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

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

If you're working with an agent to list your property, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays similar homes for sale in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

Improvements to add value to your home
