Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from 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.

A lot of sellers are shocked 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 them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract 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. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get an exact listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your home? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays selected sales in your town. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a vital step.

In our opinion, though, you should also get an appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where Ascension Appraisal comes in! We'll 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".

In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell so your house will intrigue buyers. An efficient appraisal from Ascension Appraisal can:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's quality inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Cut down the chances of unknown quandaries that can cause your sale to deteriorate
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

Ascension Appraisal can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

Ascension Appraisal will step in and help make these decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
