Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Spencer Appraisal Services, Inc.

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 house is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from Spencer Appraisal Services, Inc. actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a just listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

If you're working with an agent to list your property, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays competing homes for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding 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 vital step.

Even if you are working with an accomplished real estate agent , it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Spencer Appraisal Services, Inc. can help you! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so 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".

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's state inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown dilemmas that can cause sales to crumble
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements to add value

Spencer Appraisal Services, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I 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. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the expenses involved.
