Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Appraisal Associates of Douglas CountyIf you're working with a real estate agent to list your house, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays comparable houses for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital (and very common) step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.
In our opinion, however, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.
Appraisal Associates of Douglas County can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we can also:
Improvements to add value to your homeAppraisal Associates of Douglas County can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Should we paint the entire house before we sell it... Does the fence need replacing... Do I need to complete my closet remodel... Nearly any project will influence value in some way. But each thing affects value differently. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.
Appraisal Associates of Douglas County will step in and help you make these important decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent on commission will. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price -- our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Appraisal Associates of Douglas County. When it comes to investing in your home and settling on a fair price to sell at, we'll help homeowners like you make the sharpest decisions.
