Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Ascension Appraisal

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them 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 value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

In today's changing market, using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a just listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your property? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays selected sales in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a logical move.

But even if you have hired an experienced real estate agent , it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Ascension Appraisal comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Ascension Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you find a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's state inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unknown messes that cause negotiations to fold
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. 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. Ascension Appraisal appraisers have no vested interest in what amount your house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
