Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC

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

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

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

Are you working with an agent to sell your home? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays selected homes for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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

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

Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers, and we can also:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have found a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's shape inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected complications that cause the process to fold
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.
