If you're working with An agent to list your property, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable sales in your local area. It's a good 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 move. 

But even if you are working with an accomplished agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement.

That's where Area Appraisal Services, Inc. comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

In today's evolving market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get an expert listing price for your home. Contact us today.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Area Appraisal Services, Inc. actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value 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 its mortgage.

Improvements to add value

There are many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home -- and Area Appraisal Services, Inc. can help with that. Should we paint the entire house before we sell it... Would it help to put in that third bathroom... Should I complete my closet remodel... Virtually any project can affect value in some way. But each thing impacts value differently. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Area Appraisal Services, Inc. appraisers have no vested interest in what amount your home sells for, unlike an agent. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price -- our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Area Appraisal Services, Inc.. When it comes to investing in your home and setting a fair sales price, we'll help homeowners make the most financially sound decisions.
