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 house is much more than they had planned, 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. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract interested 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 the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a proper listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your home, more than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays comparable houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp 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 charm potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you find a prospective buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your house's shape inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected predicaments that can cause your sale to fizzle
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Upgrades that improve your home's 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 entire house before we sell it?", "Should I 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. 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 the expenses.

We can step in and help you make these important decisions. A & B Tax Service appraisers have no vested interest in the amount the home sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from A & B Tax Service is based on our efforts to complete your report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price.

When it comes to investing in your house and deciding on a fair price to sell at, we'll help homeowners make the wisest decisions.
