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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from Sun Point Appraisals, Inc. actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a precise listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your home? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays selected houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from a licensed professional who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where Sun Point Appraisals, Inc. comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

In addition to assisting you with setting a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to potential buyers. A skillful appraisal from Sun Point Appraisals, Inc. can:

Improvements to add value to your home

Sun Point Appraisals, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

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