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 much more than they thought, 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. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value 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. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.
With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a just listing price for your home.Contact us today
Are you working with an agent to sell your home? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes similar sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market, this is a crucial step.
In our opinion, however, you should also get an appraisal from a licensed professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your property - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.
And that's where Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.
A polished appraisal from Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in buyers, and we'll also:
Home improvements that add value
There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

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