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 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. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a true listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes selected sales in your town. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very common) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

But even if you have hired an experienced agent , it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Walker Appraisal Services can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

We're also experienced in helping you decide on a realistic selling price so your home will entice potential buyers. An efficient appraisal from Walker Appraisal Services can:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you find an interested buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's state inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown obstacles 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 to add value to your home

Walker Appraisal Services can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Walker Appraisal Services appraisers have no vested interest in what amount your home sells for, unlike an agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from Walker Appraisal Services is based on our efforts to complete your report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report.
