Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Maxwell Appraisal Services

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 a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people 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 realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract potential 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 the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

In today's adapting market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a skillful listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to sell your property, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays comparable sales houses in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market, this is a crucial step.

However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement, even if you're working with the most experienced agent.

And that's where Maxwell Appraisal Services can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

Maxwell Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you find a prospective buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your house's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected problems that cause negotiations to fizzle
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Upgrades that improve your home's value
