Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.
In today's adapting market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a skillful listing price for your home.Contact us
Are you working with an agent to sell your house? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very logical) step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.
However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement, even if you've hired the most experienced agent.
And that's where Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".
A knowledgeable appraisal from Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract potential buyers, and we'll also:
Improvements to add value
There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.
We'll help you make some of these decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
