Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Ferrari Appraisals LLC

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 home is more than they estimated, 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. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract interested buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

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

If you're working with an agent to sell your home, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays competing sales in your town. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a natural move.

But even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent , it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We can do 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.

In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell so your house will bring in potential buyers. A professional appraisal from Ferrari Appraisals LLC can:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's state inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Decrease the chances of unknown complications that cause negotiations to deteriorate
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements to add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. 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.
