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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting 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.

Using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get an accurate listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays comparable sales in your area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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

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

Home improvements that add value

Phoenix Valuations, LLC can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I 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. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

We can step in and help make these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
