Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Anglum Appraisal

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 much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal 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 amount of 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 potential 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 sitting 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 evolving market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get an accurate listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your home? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays comparable homes for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market, this is a crucial step.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from a professional 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.

And that's where Anglum Appraisal comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic price to sell so your house will entice buyers. An efficient appraisal from Anglum Appraisal can:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's state inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Reduce chances of unexpected obstacles that can cause sales to flop
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

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. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from Anglum Appraisal is based on our efforts to finalize your report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Anglum Appraisal.
