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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract interested 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 all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

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

Working with a real estate agent to list your property? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays competing sales in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining 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 an appraisal from a professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where Sun Point Appraisals, Inc. can help you! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

A polished appraisal from Sun Point Appraisals, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will interest potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you find an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's quality inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unknown issues that can cause your sale to deteriorate
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
