Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Timely Appraisal Services

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from Timely Appraisal Services 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 estimated value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract potential 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 its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

In today's changing market, using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a precise listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your home? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes similar houses 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 maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market.

In our opinion, however, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from a professional 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.

And that's where Timely Appraisal Services can help you! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

A skillful appraisal from Timely Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have an interested buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your house's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected headaches that cause negotiations to break down
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your home. Ask yourself "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 kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. 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.

Our fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
