Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a skillful listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to list your property, then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a crucial step.

Even if you're working with the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement.

That's where Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

In addition to assisting you with setting a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers. An expert appraisal from Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC can:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown problems that cause negotiations to fall through
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete 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. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
