Any market can be challenging. Whether you’re a homeowner selling your property on your own or a seasoned realtor trying to establish a reasonable list price, but it’s often difficult to sift through all of the market data to determine an appropriate value for your home.
So it’s common for homeowners and realtors to rely on appraisers for assistance when establishing a list price for the sale of a home or residential vacant land.
That’s where I can assist as I have over 20 years of experience of working with homeowners trying to selling their own home as well as realtors needing additional support for their own listings (or to prove to their clients the true market value of a property).
At Straw Hat Enterprises I can provide you with a professional disinterested third party, home or land appraisal, which can be more accurate than a realtor based Comparative Market Analysis (CMA). A pre-listing appraisal ensures both you and your agent will have an accurate description of your properties features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and comparable sales.
In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal:
- Provides an effective tool for negotiating with potential buyers and their agents
- Helps instill confidence in potential buyers since you have a home or land appraisal
- Highlights upfront any obvious repair problems that might be an issue with either FHA or VA as I am FHA certified and on the VA panel
- Decreases the chances of sales falling through due to unforeseen problems
Keep in mind that overpriced homes attract far fewer buyers, which means fewer and possibly no offers, wasting valuable time, money, and effort, while an under priced home can result in a lower selling price and potentially leaving substantial money on the table.
Getting a pre-listing appraisal will help you and/or your realtor determine a true list price range for your property as well as maximize your chances of selling quickly for a market based price.
A full appraisal may or may not be needed depending on what it is you’re looking for. Often times a more limited Market Analysis Consultation is entirely appropriate, whereas other times a full interior and exterior walk thru and valuation of the home or land may be necessary.
