Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Peak Appraisals

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Working with an agent to sell your property? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected sales houses in your town. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market.

Even if you're working with the most expert real estate agent, it's in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Peak Appraisals can help you! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

In today's evolving market, using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a sharp listing price for your home. Contact us today.

We're also experienced in helping you decide on a realistic price to sell so your home will appeal to buyers, a qualified appraisal from Peak Appraisals can:

  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected messes that can cause sales to fizzle

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract potential 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 sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Should we paint the whole house before we sell it... Should I complete my closet remodel... Nearly any project will affect value in some way. But not everything will have the same bang for the buck. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. So a professional appraisal from Peak Appraisals helps homeowners make the best-informed decisions on investments to add value and setting a smart price at which to sell.
