Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact People's Choice Appraisals

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 much more than they thought, 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. Others have an 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 you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a precise listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your home? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes competing sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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

And that's where People's Choice Appraisals comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

We're also experienced in assisting you with setting a realistic price to sell so your home will bring in potential buyers. A knowledgeable appraisal from People's Choice Appraisals can:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected problems that cause negotiations to fold
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent do. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from People's Choice Appraisals is based on our efforts to complete the report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — our fees are based on efforts to complete your report. So a professional appraisal from People's Choice Appraisals will help homeowners like you make the sharpest decisions when it comes to investing in their houses and setting a fair sale price.
