Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Hartland AppraisalsWorking with a real estate agent to sell your house? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit.
In our opinion, however, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.
In addition to helping you decide on a realistic selling price so your home will intrigue potential buyers, a qualified appraisal from Hartland Appraisals can:
Upgrades that improve your home's valueIn addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it... Does the tile need replacing... Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel... Almost any project can influence value in some way. Unfortunately, not all of them have an effect commensurate with their cost. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.
We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent on commission will. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Hartland Appraisals. When it comes to investing in your home and setting a fair sales price, we'll help homeowners like you make the wisest decisions.
