Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from 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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a solid listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your property? Quite often they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays selected sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market.

In our opinion, however, you should also get 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 A & B Tax Service comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

In addition to helping you decide on a realistic price to sell so your house will entice buyers. A skillful appraisal from A & B Tax Service can:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown issues that can cause sales to fold
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them 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 your expenses.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. A & B Tax Service appraisers have 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.
