Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Reachable Appraisal & Inspection Services

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. If you're working with An agent to list your property, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes selected houses for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point when determining 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 logical process.

Even if you've hired the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Reachable Appraisal & Inspection Services comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate 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".

Using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get an accurate listing price for your home in today's evolving market. Contact us today.

A knowledgeable appraisal from Reachable Appraisal & Inspection Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm buyers, and we'll also:
  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found a a prospective buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's state inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make yourself aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected predicaments that can cause your sale to fall through
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close
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 them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. 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. An overpriced house won't attract interested buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

Improvements to add value

There are many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home -- and Reachable Appraisal & Inspection Services can help with that. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Does the fence need replacing... Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel... Virtually any project can influence value in some way. But, not all of them have an effect commensurate with their cost. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price -- our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report. A professional appraisal from Reachable Appraisal & Inspection Services helps homeowners make the best-informed decisions on investments to add value and deciding on a smart listing price.
