Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Harris Valuation Solutions.

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 a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to get  thousands of 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 estimated value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means you have wasted time, money, and are left with no offers.  An appraisal is a reliable way to be confident when you finally list your home, and may even help you choose which real estate agent to use.  An appraisal will help you determine which agent's are being realistic or unrealistic when setting a listing price.  Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. 

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

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, more than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing homes for sale in your town. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

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

And that's where Harris Valuation Solutions can help you! 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".

Harris Valuation Solutions can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue buyers, and we can also:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have a prospective buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your house's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown issues that can cause your sale to fold
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence 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?", before listing your property. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Harris Valuation Solutions appraisers have no vested interest in the amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent.  An appraisal fee from Harris Valuation Solutions is based on our efforts to complete the report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price.  So a professional appraisal from Harris Valuation Solutions will help you make the smartest decisions when it comes to investing in their house and settling on a fair sales price.
