Today’s market can be challenging. Whether you’re a homeowner selling your property on your own or a seasoned realtor trying to establish a fair list price it’s often difficult to sift through all of the market data to determine a true value for your home. Because of this, it’s common for homeowners and realtors to rely on appraisers for assistance when establishing a list price for the sale of their home.
CMP Appraisals has a long history of working with homeowners trying to sell their own home as well as realtors needing additional support for their own listings (or to prove to their clients the true market value of a property).
At CMP Appraisals we can provide you with a professional 3rd party appraisal, which is usually more accurate than a realtor based Comparative Market Analysis (CMA). A pre-listing appraisal ensures both you and your agent have an accurate description of your home’s features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and comparable sales.
In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal:
-Provides an effective tool for negotiating with potential buyers and their agents
-Helps instill confidence in potential buyers since you have written proof of your home’s value
-Highlights upfront any obvious repair problems which help eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay closing and,
-Decreases the chances of sales falling through due to unforeseen problems
Keep in mind that overpriced homes attract far fewer buyers, which means fewer and possibly no offers, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts; while an underpriced home can result in a lower selling price and often coming out short.
Also, we can also help you determine what, if any, improvements would be the most cost effective in adding additional value to your home. We understand that a full appraisal may or may not be needed depending on what it is you’re looking for. A more limited valuation or market analysis report is entirely appropriate, whereas other times a full interior and exterior evaluation may be necessary. We help service all of your appraisal, home selling needs.
