Pre-Listing Appraisal Services 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 a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Desert Sky Appraisers actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home 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 house will not attract serious 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. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

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

If you're working with an agent to list your home, more than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays competing sale homes in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

Even if you have hired an expert real estate agent , it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Desert Sky Appraisers can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will interest buyers, and we can also:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have a prospective buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected complications that can cause your sale to break down
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value to your home

Desert Sky Appraisers can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

We'll step in and help make these decisions. Desert Sky Appraisers appraisers have no vested interest in the amount your house sells for, unlike an agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
