If you're working with an agent to list your home, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays selected sales houses in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a logical process.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign a Listing Agreement.

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

Improvements that add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your home. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?"
