Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Sun Point Appraisals, Inc.

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 house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an 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. An overpriced house won't attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a proper listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to sell your house? Quite often they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected sales houses in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital (and very common) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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

That's where Sun Point Appraisals, Inc. comes in! 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".
