Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Winn Appraisal Services

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Are you working with a real estate agent to list your home? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays comparable homes for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very logical) step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you've hired the most experienced real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign a Listing Agreement.

That's where Winn Appraisal Services comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

In today's changing market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a correct listing price for your home. Contact us today.

Winn Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to potential buyers, and we can also:
  • Be a an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unknown problems that cause the process to crumble
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers 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 much 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. An overpriced home won't attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Should we paint the entire house before we sell it... Does the fence need replacing... Do I need to complete my closet remodel... Nearly any project can affect value in some way. But not everything will have the same bang for the buck. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. An appraisal fee from Winn Appraisal Services is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. So a professional appraisal from Winn Appraisal Services helps homeowners like you make the wisest decisions when it comes to investments to add value and setting a profit-maximizing sales price.
