Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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 home is much more than they thought, 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 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 potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a just listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

Are you working with an agent to list your home? Quite often they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected homes for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market.

Even if you've been working with an accomplished agent , it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Astute Appraisals, Inc. can help you! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

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

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find an interested buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Reduce chances of unknown quandaries that can cause sales to crumble
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.
