Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Appraisal Specialists of SW FL, Inc.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. If you're working with An agent to sell your property, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays similar houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

But even if you've hired the most accomplished agent, it's in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Appraisal Specialists of SW FL, Inc. comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

In today's changing market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a factual listing price for your home. Contact us today.

A knowledgeable appraisal from Appraisal Specialists of SW FL, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract potential buyers, and we'll also:

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

Home improvements that add value

Appraisal Specialists of SW FL, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Should I finish my closet remodel... Almost any project will influence value in some way. But not everything will have the same bang for the buck. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent on commission will. An appraisal fee from Appraisal Specialists of SW FL, Inc. is based on our efforts to complete your report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. A professional appraisal from Appraisal Specialists of SW FL, Inc. will help you make the best decisions when it comes to investments to add value and settling on a fair price at which to sell.
