Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from RWA Appraisals

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 more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people 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 amount of value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't 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 on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a solid listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your home? More than likely, they'll provide you with 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. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market, this is a crucial step.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We'll perform 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".

We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic price to sell so your home will entice buyers. A professional appraisal from RWA Appraisals can:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown issues that can cause sales to deteriorate
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.
