Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from ASK Real Estate ServicesAre you working with a real estate agent to list your property? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes competing houses for sale 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 logical process.
However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you've been working with an experienced real estate agent.
ASK Real Estate Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm potential buyers, and we can also:
Improvements to add value to your homeIn addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it... Should I finish my closet remodel... Practically any project can affect value in some way. Unfortunately, not all of them have an effect commensurate with their cost. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.
We'll 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 not a percentage of the sales price -- your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from ASK Real Estate Services. When it comes to investing in your house and setting a fair sales price, we'll help you make the sharpest decisions.
