Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Phoenix Valuations, LLC

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 much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from Phoenix Valuations, LLC actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value 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 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 its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a correct listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your house? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes a list of sales in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where Phoenix Valuations, LLC comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. 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 closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.
