Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from James Earp Appraisal Service.If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your home, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays comparable houses for sale in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very logical) step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.
But even if you're working with an accomplished agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.
James Earp Appraisal Service can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will interest potential buyers, and we can also:
Improvements to add valueIn addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Do I need to finish my closet remodel... Almost any project has the potential to influence value in some way. But not everything will have the same return on investment. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.
Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent on commission will. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. So a professional appraisal from James Earp Appraisal Service will help homeowners like you make the wisest decisions when it comes to investments to add value and deciding on a fair sales price.
