Pre-Listing, Pre-Purchase & FSBO Appraisals
Today’s market can be challenging. Whether you’re a homeowner selling your property on your own, or a seasoned Realtor trying to establish a fair list price, it’s difficult to sift through all of the market data to determine a true value for your home. That’s why homeowners and Realtors rely on appraisers when establishing a list price for the sale of their home.
Accurity Valuation has a long history of working with homeowners and Realtors who need additional support for their listings, or to prove to their clients the true market value of a property. Accurity Valuation will provide you with a professional third-party appraisal, which is far more accurate than a Realtor-based Comparative Market Analysis (CMA). A pre-listing appraisal ensures both you and your agent have an accurate description of your home’s features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and comparable sales.
In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal:
• Provides an effective tool for negotiating with potential buyers and their agents.
• Helps instill confidence in potential buyers, since you have written proof of your home’s value.
• Highlights any obvious repair problems, which helps eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay closing.
• Decreases the chances of sales falling through due to unforeseen problems.
Overpriced homes don’t attract buyers, which means you receive few if any offers, and you waste valuable time, money, and effort. On the other hand, an underpriced home can result in a lower selling price, which means you lose out on substantial profit. Getting a pre-listing appraisal will help you and/or your realtor determine a true list price for your property as well as maximize your chances of selling quickly for top dollar. In addition, we can help you determine what improvements would be the most cost-effective to add additional value to your home.
A full appraisal may or may not be needed, depending on what you’re looking for. Often, a limited valuation or market analysis report is entirely appropriate, while other times a full interior and exterior valuation may be necessary.
