Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Lakeland Appraisal
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people 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 realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house 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 home is still sitting on the market.
With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a just listing price for your home.Contact us today
Are you working with a real estate agent to list your house? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays competing sales in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.
Even if you are working with an expert agent , it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing the Listing Agreement.
That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so both 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".
A professional appraisal from Lakeland Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue potential buyers, and we'll also:
Improvements that add value to your home
There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.
We can step in and help make these decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
