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 house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people 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 estimated value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious 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. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

In today's evolving market, using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a correct listing price for your home.

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

But even if you've hired the most accomplished agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

And that's where A & B Tax Service can help you! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

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

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown difficulties that cause negotiations to break down
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements that add value to your home

A & B Tax Service can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. 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.

A & B Tax Service can help you with these decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
