Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Lallier Appraisal Group 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 more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Lallier Appraisal Group LLC actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a true listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your property? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

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

That's where we come in! We'll do 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".

In addition to helping you decide on a realistic price to sell so your home will entice buyers. An expert appraisal from Lallier Appraisal Group LLC can:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you find a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Reduce chances of unexpected messes that can cause your sale to go up in smoke
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to 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 kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.
