Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Allstate Appraisal, Inc.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Allstate Appraisal, Inc. actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property 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 house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

In today's adapting market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get an expert listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your property, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable sales in your area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, however, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from a professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

And that's where Allstate Appraisal, Inc. can help you! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

We're also experienced in assisting you with setting a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers. A qualified appraisal from Allstate Appraisal, Inc. can:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's state inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown complications that can cause sales to break down
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.

Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
