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.

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 actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a sharp listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your property? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected houses for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very common) step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, however, you should also get an appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

A skillful appraisal from Allstate Appraisal, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will interest buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unknown issues that can cause sales to go up in smoke
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Upgrades that improve your home's value
