Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact RWA Appraisals
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, 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. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract interested 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 the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.
Using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get an expert listing price for your home in today's changing market.Contact us
Working with an agent to sell your house? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.
However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you have hired an experienced real estate agent.
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 home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Improvements that add value to your home
In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.
