Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Socal Appraiser
Working with an agent to list your property? More than likely, they’ll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes selected sales houses in your area. It’s a good starting point in determining your home’s listing price. If you’re going to minimize the house’s time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.
Even if you’re working with the most experienced real estate agent, it’s definitely in your best interest to also have a third-party’s objective opinion before signing the Listing Agreement.
And that’s where Appraisals By Michael comes in! We can do 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.
Appraisals By Michael can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will draw in buyers, and we can also:
- Be a an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have a an interested buyer
- Wow potential buyers with written proof of your house’s shape inside and out
- Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make yourself aware of problems
- Reduce chances of unexpected difficulties that can cause sales to fold

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won’t attract buyers, which means you throw away time and money and are left with no offers. And you’re stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.
Improvements To Add Value
There are many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home — and Appraisals By Michael can help with that. Should we paint the whole house before we sell it… Should I finish my closet remodel… Virtually any project will influence value in some way. But not everything will have an equal impact. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the expenses involved.
We’ll help you make some of these important decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent on commission will. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price — our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report.
