Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Wohlenhaus Appraisal Service

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Are you working with an agent to list your house? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays similar sale homes in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you have hired an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where Wohlenhaus Appraisal Service can help you! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

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

In addition to assisting you with setting a realistic selling price so your home will interest potential buyers, a qualified appraisal from Wohlenhaus Appraisal Service can:

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Wohlenhaus Appraisal Service actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an 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 will not attract serious 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 property is still sitting on the market.
