Pre-Listing Home Appraisals | Dallas Real Estate Appraisal Associates

Pre-Listing Home Appraisals - Dallas, TX If you're working with an agent to list your house, more than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays similar sales in your local area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a natural process.

Even if you've been working with an experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of home value before you sign a Listing Agreement.

That's where Assured Appraisal, James Make & Associates comes in! We'll do a Pre-Listing Home Appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Hiring a licensed Home Appraiser is the best way to get Pre-Listing Home Appraisals for your home in today's evolving market. Contact us today.

Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel... Almost any project will influence value in some way. But not everything will have an equal impact. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Unlike an agent, a Home Appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. An appraisal fee from James Make & Associates is based on our efforts to finalize your report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. So please consider ordering a Pre-Listing Home Appraisal from James Make & Associates. When it comes to investing in your home and setting a fair sale price, we'll help homeowners like you make the smartest decisions.
