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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from Astute Appraisals, Inc. 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 inflated opinion of their home's price value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home 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 its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

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

Are you working with an agent to list your house? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes competing houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market.

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

That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Astute Appraisals, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown headaches that can cause your sale to flop
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

We'll step in and help you make these important decisions. Astute Appraisals, Inc. appraisers have no vested interest in the amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
