If you’re working with a real estate agent to list your property, more than likely they will provide you with a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) that lists selected sales in your area as one of the first steps in determining what to set as the “Listing Price”. This step is vital if you’re going to maximize your profit and minimize the home’s time on the market.
But even if you’re working with the most experienced real estate agent, it’s probably in your best interest to have an “objective” third-party’s opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement. And that’s where New Era Appraisals comes in! We can provide you with 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”.
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 with New Era Appraisals actually allowed them to receive thousands more than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home’s value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts.
In addition to “how much should I list my house for?” there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Questions like
“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 which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal or greater contributory value. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expense.
Our Certified Real Estate Appraisers can step in and help you make these decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on our efforts to complete the report and not a percentage of the sales price. So a professional appraisal from New Era Appraisals can help homeowners make the best decisions on investing in their home and setting a fair sales price.
