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.

A lot of sellers are shocked 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 sellers 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 won't attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

With today's changing market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a solid listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your property? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected houses for sale in your town. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a crucial step.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you have hired an experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

We're also experienced in helping you decide on a realistic price to sell so your house will draw in buyers. An expert appraisal from Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC can:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unexpected predicaments that can cause sales to go up in smoke
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. 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 new bathroom?", "Do I need to 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. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
