Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Brooks Appraisal Services.

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 had planned, so investing in an appraisal from Brooks Appraisal Services actually allowed these people to get several thousand 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 amount of value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious 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 property sits on the market.

In today's changing market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a just listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to sell your home? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of homes for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point in 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.

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

That's where Brooks Appraisal Services comes 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".

In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell so your home will intrigue buyers. A professional appraisal from Brooks Appraisal Services can:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you find an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected complications that can cause sales to go up in smoke
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements that add value to your home

Brooks Appraisal Services can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Ask yourself "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 closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
