Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Risser AppraisalsWorking with a real estate agent to list your house? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays a list of sales houses in your local area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the home'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 in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement.
An efficient appraisal from Risser Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract potential buyers, and we'll also:
Home improvements that add valueThere are many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home -- and Risser Appraisals can help with that. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Should I put in that third bathroom... Do I need to complete my closet remodel... Virtually any project has the potential to affect value in some way. Unfortunately, not all of them have an effect commensurate with their cost. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.
We'll help you make some of these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Risser Appraisals. When it comes to investing in your home and deciding on a fair sales price, we'll help you make the sharpest decisions.
