Today’s market can be challenging. When you are a homeowner selling your property on your own (FBSO) it’s sometimes difficult to sift through all of the market data to determine a true value for your home. In these situations it is common practice for homeowners to rely on appraisers for assistance when establishing a list price for the sale of a home.
That’s where Turner’s Appraisals comes in! I have a long history of working with homeowners trying to selling their own home,
I can provide you with a professional, unbiased third party appraisal, which is far more accurate than a MLS or Web (Zillow, Redfin etc…) based Comparative Market Analysis (CMA). Pre-listing appraisals ensures you have an accurate description of your home’s features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and comparable sales.
In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal:
- Provides an effective tool for negotiating with potential buyers and their agents
- Helps instill confidence in potential buyers since you have written proof of your home’s value
- Highlights upfront any obvious repair problems which helps eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay closing
- Decreases the chances of sales falling through due to unforeseen problems
Overpriced homes attract far fewer buyers, which means fewer and possibly no offers, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts while an underpriced home can result in a lower selling price and you leaving substantial money on the table.
Getting a pre-listing appraisal will help you determine a true list price for your property as well as maximize your chances of selling quickly for top dollar. In addition, I can help you determine what, if any, improvements would be the most cost effective in adding additional value to your home. If there is any question about permitted or unpermitted additions you also want my Home Measurement Services. These tool make for a compelling an effective addition to your MLS listing.
A full appraisal may or may not be needed depending on what it is you’re looking for. Often times a more limited valuation or market analysis report is entirely appropriate, whereas other times a full interior and exterior inspection may be necessary.
