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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't 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 the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

In today's evolving market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a skillful listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to sell your house, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes similar sale homes in your town. 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 vital step.

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

And that's where Phoenix Valuations, LLC can help you! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

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

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you find an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unknown headaches that can cause your sale to fizzle
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements that add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. 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. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent do. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
