Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Walker 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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from Walker 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. 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. 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 house sits on the market.

With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a proper listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your property, more than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of sales houses in your town. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

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

That's where Walker Appraisal Services comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so both 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".

Walker Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have found a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unexpected obstacles that can cause sales to fall through
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements that add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Walker Appraisal Services can help you with these decisions. Walker Appraisal Services appraisers have no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
