Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact SC Appraisals Inc
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from SC Appraisals Inc actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to realistically price 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. Every month your house stays 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 is still sitting on the market.
Using a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a skillful listing price for your home in today's evolving market.Contact us
If you're working with an agent to list your house, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes competing sales in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market, this is a crucial step.
In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from a licensed professional who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to listing your property - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.
And that's where SC Appraisals Inc can help you! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both 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".
An efficient appraisal from SC Appraisals Inc can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm buyers, and we'll also:
Improvements to add value
There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.
