Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Maffeo-Kelly Appraisal Co., LLC
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, 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 realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.
With today's changing market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get an exact listing price for your home.Contact us
Are you working with an agent to list your home? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing houses for sale in your area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a vital step.

Improvements to add value to your home
In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet 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. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.
