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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers 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 amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting 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.

In today's fluctuating market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a correct listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to list your home, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays a list of homes for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

In our opinion, however, you should also get an appraisal from a licensed professional who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Anglum Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to impress buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown predicaments that can cause your sale to flop
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Anglum Appraisal can help you with these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our 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 the report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report.
