Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Personal Service Realty's Residential Valuation Group

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

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from Personal Service Realty's Residential Valuation Group actually allowed these sellers 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 price value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a proper listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to sell your property? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays a list of houses for sale in your town. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market, this is a crucial step.

However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement, even if you have hired an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where Personal Service Realty's Residential Valuation Group comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
