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 them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

In today's adapting market, using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a fair listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to list your property? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes competing houses for sale in your town. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very logical) step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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

That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so 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.

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

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's condition inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Reduce chances of unknown messes that can cause sales to fizzle
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third 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. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

Astute Appraisals, Inc. will step in and help make these decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
