Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Tight & Right Real Estate Valuation
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, 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. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.
Using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a solid listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.Contact us
Are you working with a real estate agent to list your property? Quite often they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit.
Even if you've hired the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement.
That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.
Tight & Right Real Estate Valuation can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract potential buyers, and we can also:
Home improvements that add value
In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.
We'll help you make some of these decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
