Pre-Listing, Pre-Purchase, FSBO’s

Today’s market is challenging to say the least. If you’re a homeowner selling your property on your own (FSBO) or a seasoned realtor trying to determine a fair list price it’s often difficult to sift through all of the market data and market conditions to determine a listing price for your home.

Relying Sammco Appraisal Group for assistance when establishing a list price for the sale of a home is a smart move. Realtors can provide the best service to their clients by pricing the property appropriately to sell as quickly as possible without leaving money on the table.

We have a long history of working with homeowners and Realtors trying to sell properties and provide needed additional support for establishing true market value.

At Sammco Appraisal Group will provide you with a professional 3rd party appraisal, which is far more accurate than any realtor based Comparative Market Analysis (CMA). Pre-listing appraisals ensures both owners and their agents have an accurate description of the home’s updates and  features including a detailed analysis of the most recent comparable sales.

In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price for your home so it will attract buyers, a professional appraisal:

  • Provides an effective tools for negotiating with potential buyers and their agents
  • Helps instill confidence in potential buyers and their lenders having written proof of the home’s value
  • Points out upfront any obvious repair problems which will help eliminate last-minute appraisal reinspection or repair hassles that might delay the closing
  • Decreases the possibility of sales falling out of escrow due to unforeseen deferred maintenance problems

Overpriced homes attract fewer buyers. Stale, overpriced listings that have been on the market for a long time have far less chance of selling than properties that have been priced properly.  This is a waste of valuable time, money, and efforts while an underpriced home most likely will result in a lower selling price, leaving substantial money on the table.

Getting a pre-listing appraisal will help buyers and their agents determine a true list price for the property as well as maximize the chances of selling quickly for top dollar. We can help determine what improvements would be the most cost effective in adding additional value to your home.

A full or limited appraisal may or may not be needed depending on what it is you’re looking for. Often times a more limited valuation or market analysis report is entirely appropriate, whereas other times a full interior and exterior valuation may be necessary.
