Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Indiana Appraisal ServicesIf you're working with a real estate agent to sell your house, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your local area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market.
In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from a professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced agent.
In addition to helping you decide on a realistic price to sell so your home will draw in buyers, a qualified appraisal from Indiana Appraisal Services can:
Improvements that add value to your homeThere are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Does the fence need replacing... Should I finish my kitchen remodel... Nearly any project will affect value in some way. But each thing impacts marketability differently. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.
Indiana Appraisal Services can help you with these decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent on commission will. An appraisal fee from Indiana Appraisal Services is based on our efforts to finalize your report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. A professional appraisal from Indiana Appraisal Services helps homeowners like you make the best-informed decisions when it comes to investments to add value and settling on a profit-maximizing listing price.
