Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Ascension Appraisal

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

A lot of sellers are shocked 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 these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of 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 won't attract serious 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 its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a precise listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to sell your home? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing sale homes in your area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market.

But even if you're working with an experienced agent , it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Ascension Appraisal comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so 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".

We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic price to sell so your house will interest potential buyers. A skillful appraisal from Ascension Appraisal can:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a prospective buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Reduce chances of unexpected messes that can cause sales to fold
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property There are many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home -- and Ascension Appraisal can help with that.
