Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from
PAYNE Appraisal, LLC
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 a professional appraisal actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.
Hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get an exact listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.Contact us
If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your home, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays competing sales houses in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market.
In our opinion, though, you should also get an appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced agent.
And that's where PAYNE Appraisal, LLC can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.
