Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Colliver Appraisal ServiceIf you're working with a real estate agent to sell your house, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes a list of sale homes in your area. It's a good starting point in deciding 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.
But even if you've hired an accomplished agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.
An expert appraisal from Colliver Appraisal Service can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we'll also:
Home improvements that add valueIn addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Should I put in that new bathroom... Should I complete my closet remodel... Practically any project can influence value in some way. But, not all of them have an effect commensurate with their cost. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

An appraisal fee from Colliver Appraisal Service is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. When it comes to investing in your home and deciding on a fair sales price, A professional appraisal from us will help homeowners make the sharpest decisions.
