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.

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 an appraisal from KEY INSIGHT 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 estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious 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 on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

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

Working with a real estate agent to sell your house? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected sales in your area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing a Listing Agreement, even if you've been working with the most experienced real estate agent.

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

A professional appraisal from KEY INSIGHT can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's condition inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unknown messes that can cause sales to fall through
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish 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 your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We'll step in and help make these decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent do. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
