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

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

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

If you're working with an agent to list your house, more than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected sales in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a standard process.

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

And that's where Brooks Appraisal Services comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

An efficient appraisal from Brooks Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will interest buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you find a prospective buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your house's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown predicaments that cause the process to go up in smoke
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home There are many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home -- and Brooks Appraisal Services can help with that. Questions like "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 kitchen remodel?"
