Pre-Listing Appraisal Services 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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, 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. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a proper listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.

Working with an agent to sell your property? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays selected sale homes in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market.

Even if you've hired the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.

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

A polished appraisal from A & B Tax Service can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find an interested buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected predicaments that can cause sales to fold
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
