Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Nordquist Appraisal LLC

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 home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Nordquist Appraisal LLC actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still 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 sits on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the best way to get an expert listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your home? Quite often you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays selected sales in your town. It's a customary starting point when 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 process.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from a professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where Nordquist Appraisal LLC comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so 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".

An expert appraisal from Nordquist Appraisal LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown issues that can cause your sale to fall through
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

Nordquist Appraisal LLC can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Ask yourself "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

Nordquist Appraisal LLC can help you with these important 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 finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
