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 a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from Astute Appraisals, Inc. actually allowed these sellers 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 estimated value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract 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 all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a just listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your property? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays a list of sale homes in your area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a natural move.

But even if you have hired an experienced agent , it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign a Listing Agreement.

That's where Astute Appraisals, Inc. comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

A polished appraisal from Astute Appraisals, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected disputes that can cause sales to fizzle
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

Astute Appraisals, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
