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 house is much more than they thought, 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. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious potential 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 its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a precise listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to sell your house, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays selected sales in your town. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

Even if you are working with an experienced agent , it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before signing a Listing Agreement.

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

An efficient appraisal from Anglum Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have found an interested buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown messes that can cause your sale to fizzle
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet 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. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the expenses involved.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
