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 a professional appraisal actually allowed them 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 realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious 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 you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a correct listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your property? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays competing sales houses in your town. It's a good starting point in determining 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 standard process.

In our opinion, though, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to listing your property - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where we come in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

In addition to assisting you with setting a realistic price to sell so your house will appeal to potential buyers. An expert appraisal from Nordquist Appraisal LLC can:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's state inside and out to impress buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unknown predicaments that cause the process to go up in smoke
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

We'll step in and help make these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
