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 house is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth a lot 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 you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a fair listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.

Are you working with an agent to sell your property? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of sales houses in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a natural process.

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