Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Astute Appraisals, Inc.
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much 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. An overpriced property won't attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home stays 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 considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a skillful listing price for your home.Contact us
