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 thought, so investing in an appraisal from Anglum Appraisal 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 estimated value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes 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 the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get an expert listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your property? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes competing sales houses in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a standard process.

However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement, even if you're working with the most experienced agent.

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

In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell so your home will interest buyers. A skillful appraisal from Anglum Appraisal can:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's state inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unknown predicaments that can cause sales to fold
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

Anglum Appraisal can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Ask yourself "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish 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. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Anglum Appraisal appraisers have no vested interest in what amount the home sells for, unlike an agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from Anglum Appraisal is based on our efforts to complete the report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price — our fees are based on efforts to complete the report. So a professional appraisal from Anglum Appraisal helps homeowners make the best decisions when it comes to investing in their homes and settling on a fair sales price.
