Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Jordan-Appraisal

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 an agent to list your home? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays similar sale homes in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market, this is a vital step.

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

That's where we come in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a skillful listing price for your home. Contact us today.

Jordan-Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will draw in buyers, and we can also:
  • Be a an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have found a a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's condition inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make yourself aware of problems
  • Decrease the chances of unknown dilemmas that cause the process to flop

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal 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. An overpriced home will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you throw away time and money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage.

Improvements that add value to your home

Jordan-Appraisal can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Should we paint the whole house before we sell it... Would it help to put in that new bathroom... Should I finish my kitchen remodel... Almost any project can affect value in some way. Unfortunately, not all of them have an effect commensurate with their cost. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

We'll step in and help you make these decisions. Jordan-Appraisal appraisers have no vested interest in the amount your house sells for, unlike an agent. An appraisal fee from Jordan-Appraisal 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 Jordan-Appraisal will help homeowners like you make the decisions when it comes to investments to add value and deciding on a fair sales price.
