Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Sightes Appraisal.
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's price value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract interested buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. 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.
In today's ever-changing market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a skillful listing price for your home.Contact us today
If you're working with a real estate agent to list your house, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays comparable sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market.
However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement, even if you are working with the most experienced agent.
And that's where Sightes Appraisal comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.
Sightes Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will draw in potential buyers, and we can also:
Improvements to add value
In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Ask yourself "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen may 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.

Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
