Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from 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 home 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 over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house 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 sitting still on the market.

In today's evolving market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get an exact listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to list your house? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays similar homes for sale in your area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

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

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

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

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected difficulties that can cause sales to fall through
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
