Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Grandview Appraisal Group
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal from us 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 inflated opinion of their home's value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.
With today's changing market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a proper listing price for your home.Contact us
Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your home? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable sales in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.
In our opinion, however, you should also get an appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to listing your property - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.
And that's where Grandview Appraisal Group can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate 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".

Improvements that add value to your home
In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Ask yourself "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
