Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal 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 a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract 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. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

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

Are you working with an agent to sell your home? Quite often you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of sales houses in your town. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a vital step.

In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

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

A knowledgeable appraisal from J. Boyles Appraisals, LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Blow away 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
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected issues that cause negotiations to fold
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.
