Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from KEY INSIGHT.

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

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious 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 its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

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

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your house? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays a list of homes for sale in your town. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very logical) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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

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

We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic price to sell so your house will appeal to buyers. A skillful appraisal from KEY INSIGHT can:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you find a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected disputes that cause the process to crumble
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
