Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Bear Rock Appraisal
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.
Using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a solid listing price for your home in today's adapting market.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 includes selected sales in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.
But even if you've been working with an expert agent , it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing a Listing Agreement.
And that's where Bear Rock Appraisal comes 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 comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.
Bear Rock Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we can also:
Upgrades that improve your home's value
In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. 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 finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.
We can step in and help make these important decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
