Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Appraisal Quest Co. (805) 469-3088

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 home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from Appraisal Quest Co. (805) 469-3088 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. An overpriced property 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 its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a precise listing price for your home.

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 customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

But even if you've hired an expert real estate agent , it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign a Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Appraisal Quest Co. (805) 469-3088 can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers, and we can also:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you find a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected quandaries that cause negotiations to go up in smoke
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your home. Ask yourself "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from Appraisal Quest Co.
