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 a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-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 property will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a precise listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to list your home? Quite often you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays a list of sale homes in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement, even if you have been working with the most experienced agent.

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

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

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown complications that can cause your sale to break down
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen 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. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the expenses involved.

We'll step in and help make these decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
