Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Ballew & Company

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract serious 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 sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, using a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a solid listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to sell your home? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays comparable houses for sale in your town. 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 standard process.

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

That's where Ballew & Company comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

Ballew & Company can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm buyers, and we can also:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's state inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Decrease the chances of unknown problems that cause the process to deteriorate
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Ask yourself "Should we 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 everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.
