Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Daniel Todd Appraisal Services, LLC

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Are you working with a real estate agent to list your house? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of sales in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very logical) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement, even if you have hired the most experienced agent.

That's where we come in! 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.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a correct listing price for your home. Contact us today.

Daniel Todd Appraisal Services, LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we can also:
  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have found a an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unknown difficulties that cause the process to break down
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

Home improvements that add value

Daniel Todd Appraisal Services, LLC can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel... Almost any project can affect value in some way. But not everything will have the same bang for the buck. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Daniel Todd Appraisal Services, LLC will step in and help make these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price -- our fees are based on efforts to finalize your report. A professional appraisal from Daniel Todd Appraisal Services, LLC will help you make the wisest decisions on investments to add value and deciding on a smart listing price.
