Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from R.M. Rose

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

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract serious 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. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a fair listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to sell your property? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays competing sales houses in your local area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very logical) step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.

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

We're also experienced in assisting you with setting a realistic selling price so your home will charm potential buyers. A skillful appraisal from R.M. Rose can:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found a potential buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unknown complications that can cause sales to deteriorate
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

R.M. Rose can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet 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 may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from R.M.
