Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Aaliyah Appraisals.

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 much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a true listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your property? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays similar sales houses in your local area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very common) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you're working with an expert agent , it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Aaliyah Appraisals can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

A polished appraisal from Aaliyah Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have a a prospective buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unknown messes that can cause your sale to break down
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent do. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
