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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract 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 its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

In today's changing market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a solid listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your home? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market, this is a crucial step.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement, even if you are working with the most experienced agent.

That's where A & B Tax Service comes in! We can 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".

In addition to assisting you with setting a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue buyers. A qualified appraisal from A & B Tax Service can:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you find an interested buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected complications that can cause your sale to fold
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

A & B Tax Service can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
