Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Streamline Appraisals/Tim Taylor Realty

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us 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. Overpriced homes will not attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a true listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.

If you're working with an agent to list your property, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of sales houses in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, though, you should also get an appraisal from a licensed professional who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

And that's where Streamline Appraisals/Tim Taylor Realty comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your 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".

A skillful appraisal from Streamline Appraisals/Tim Taylor Realty can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you find an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unexpected disputes that can cause your sale to flop

Improvements that add value to your home

Streamline Appraisals/Tim Taylor Realty can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Ask yourself "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to 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 may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

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