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 much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from Walker Appraisal Services actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract potential 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. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the best way to get an exact listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

Are you working with an agent to list your home? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected sales in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

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

And that's where Walker Appraisal Services comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your house'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 buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected predicaments that cause negotiations to break down
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. 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 finalize the report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Walker Appraisal Services.
