Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Lundquist Appraisals & Real Estate Services

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers 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 value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious 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 the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

In today's adapting market, using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a precise listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to sell your house? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays comparable homes for sale in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where Lundquist Appraisals & Real Estate Services 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 home's features.

Lundquist Appraisals & Real Estate Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will draw in buyers, and we can also:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have found an interested buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your house's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected difficulties that cause the process to break down
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements that add value to your home

Lundquist Appraisals & Real Estate Services can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

Lundquist Appraisals & Real Estate Services can help you with these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
