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 a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from Desert Sky Appraisers actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

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

Working with an agent to list your home? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes competing sale homes in your local area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

But even if you're working with an experienced agent , it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Desert Sky Appraisers comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

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

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your house's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown obstacles that cause the process to fizzle
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements to add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your house. Questions like "Should we 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 have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Your fee to us is 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 finalize the report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report.
