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 much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from Maxwell Appraisal Services 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 over-inflated opinion of their home's value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a sharp listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your property? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays selected sales houses in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

Even if you have hired an accomplished real estate agent , it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

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

An expert appraisal from Maxwell Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have an interested buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown issues that can cause your sale to fall through
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house There are many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home -- and Maxwell Appraisal Services can help with that. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.
