Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Good Look Appraisals

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 had planned, so investing in an appraisal from Good Look Appraisals actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious 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 you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a correct listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your property? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes comparable sales houses in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

Even if you're working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Good Look Appraisals can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

A skillful appraisal from Good Look Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's quality inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Cut down the chances of unknown messes that can cause your sale to break down
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. 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 new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Good Look Appraisals appraisers have no vested interest in the amount your home sells for, unlike an agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
