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 home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do 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 its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

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

Are you working with an agent to list your home? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays selected sales in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a vital (and very logical) step if your goals 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 before you sign a Listing Agreement, even if you have hired an experienced agent.

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

A professional appraisal from Phoenix Valuations, LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's shape inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown issues that can cause your sale to fold
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your house. Questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Phoenix Valuations, LLC will step in and help you make these decisions. Phoenix Valuations, LLC appraisers have no vested interest in the amount your house sells for, unlike an agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
