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 house is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people 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 a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract 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. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

In today's changing market, using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get an expert listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your home? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays comparable houses for sale in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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

That's where we come in! 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.

In addition to assisting you with setting a realistic price to sell so your home will charm potential buyers. An expert appraisal from Brooks Appraisal Services can:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unknown disputes that cause the process to flop
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
