Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Matrix Appraisal Group
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 from us actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.
Using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a factual listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.Contact us
Are you working with a real estate agent to list your home? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes selected houses for sale in your local area. It's a good 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.
However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement, even if you've been working with an experienced agent.
That's where Matrix Appraisal Group comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".
Matrix Appraisal Group can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will draw in buyers, and we can also:
Upgrades that improve your home's value
Matrix Appraisal Group can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.
We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Matrix Appraisal Group appraisers have no vested interest in the amount the home sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
