Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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 house is much more than they had planned, 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. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get an accurate listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to list your house, then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays a list of sale homes in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a crucial step.

In our opinion, though, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from a professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

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

Phoenix Valuations, LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you find a prospective buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's quality inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected difficulties that can cause your sale to go up in smoke
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

Phoenix Valuations, LLC can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

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 finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
