Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact A & B Tax Service

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 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. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract 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 home sits on the market.

In today's changing market, hiring 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, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes a list of sales houses in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where A & B Tax Service comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so both 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".

A & B Tax Service can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will interest potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's condition inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected predicaments that can cause your sale to fold
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Ask yourself "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

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