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 a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people 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 a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract interested 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 in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

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

Working with a real estate agent to list your property? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays comparable houses for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a vital step.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign a Listing Agreement.

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

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your house's shape inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour

Improvements to add value

Allstate Appraisal, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

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