Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Astute Appraisals, Inc..

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 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. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

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

Are you working with an agent to sell your house? Quite often they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays selected sales in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market, this is a really important step.

In our opinion, however, you should also get an appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so 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.

We're also experienced in helping you decide on a realistic selling price so your home will draw in potential buyers. An efficient appraisal from Astute Appraisals, Inc. can:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have an interested buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unknown difficulties that can cause sales to crumble
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements that add value to your home

Astute Appraisals, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Ask yourself "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

Astute Appraisals, Inc. will step in and help make these important decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
