Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Christian Santana
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from Christian Santana actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract serious 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 sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.
With today's changing market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a correct listing price for your home.Contact us today
If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes competing homes for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market, this is a really important step.
Even if you've hired the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement.
And that's where Christian Santana can help you! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.
Christian Santana can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will draw in buyers, and we can also:
Improvements to add value to your home
Christian Santana can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.
We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Christian Santana appraisers have no vested interest in the amount your home sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from Christian Santana is based on our efforts to complete the report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — our fees are based on efforts to finalize your report.
