Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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 house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract 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 the mortgage. 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 top way to get an accurate listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to sell your house? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

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

And that's where Allstate Appraisal, Inc. can help you! We can do 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.

  • Provide written proof of your house's state inside and out to blow away buyers

Improvements to add value to your home

Allstate Appraisal, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Ask yourself "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 complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

We can step in and help make these important decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent do. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
