Pre-Listing Appraisal Services 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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from Barnstable/Plymouth Appraisal Services actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

In today's adapting market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the top way to get an accurate listing price for your home.

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect.
