Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Barnstable/Plymouth Appraisal Services
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from Barnstable/Plymouth Appraisal Services actually allowed these people 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 estimated value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious potential 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 the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.
With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a sharp listing price for your home.Contact us today
If you're working with an agent to sell your house, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market.
Even if you're working with the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement.
That's where we come in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both 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 buyers, and we can also:
Home improvements that add value
In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish 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 the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.
