Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Appraisal Quest, Inc..

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, more than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays selected sales in your area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a crucial step.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement, even if you've hired the most experienced real estate agent.

That's where Appraisal Quest, Inc. comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so 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 or "comps".

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get an accurate listing price for your home. Contact us today.

A professional appraisal from Appraisal Quest, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue buyers, and we'll also:
  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's shape inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make yourself aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unknown problems that can cause sales to fall through
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth a lot 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. Overpriced homes do not attract serious buyers, which means you squander time and (not to mention) money and still have no prospects for buying your home. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage.

Improvements that add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Should we paint the whole house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Do I need to finish my closet remodel... Almost any project can affect value in some way. But each thing impacts value differently. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

Appraisal Quest, Inc. can help you with these decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent on commission will. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. When it comes to investing in your home and deciding on a fair sales price, A professional appraisal from us helps homeowners like you make the sharpest decisions.
