Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Desert Sky Appraisers.

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 more than they estimated, 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. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a precise listing price for your home.

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 displays competing sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market.

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

And that's where Desert Sky Appraisers comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate 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".

We're also experienced in helping you decide on a realistic selling price so your home will intrigue buyers. An expert appraisal from Desert Sky Appraisers can:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have a prospective buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your house's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Reduce chances of unknown difficulties that can cause your sale to go up in smoke
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", 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 complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from Desert Sky Appraisers 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 appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Desert Sky Appraisers.
