Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Scolastico Appraisals, LLC

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 Scolastico Appraisals, LLC actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious 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 the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

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

Working with an agent to sell your property? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected homes for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very logical) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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 of value before you sign the Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have found a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unexpected messes that can cause sales to deteriorate
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your home. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
