Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Elite Appraisal, Inc..

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your property, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding 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.

In our opinion, however, you should also get an appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where Elite Appraisal, Inc. comes in! We'll 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 home's features.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a sharp listing price for your home in today's adapting market. Contact us today.

Elite Appraisal, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm potential buyers, and we can also:
  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make yourself aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown messes that cause negotiations to fold
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, 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 price value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

Improvements to add value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Does the tile need replacing... Do I need to complete my closet remodel... Almost any project will influence value in some way. Unfortunately, not all of them have an impact commensurate with their cost. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We can step in and help you make these decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent on commission will. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. A professional appraisal from Elite Appraisal, Inc. will help homeowners make the wisest decisions when it comes to investments to add value and setting a fair listing price.
