Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Barnstable/Plymouth Appraisal Services.

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 much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract interested buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get an expert listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to sell your house? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays selected sales in your town. It's a customary starting point in deciding 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.

In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from a licensed professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where Barnstable/Plymouth Appraisal Services comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Barnstable/Plymouth Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you find a prospective buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unknown issues that can cause your sale to flop
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements to add value

Barnstable/Plymouth Appraisal Services can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Ask yourself "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will 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 your expenses.

Our fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
