Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Pamela EvansIf you're working with a real estate agent to list your house, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays competing homes for sale in your town. It's a good starting point in determining 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.
In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your property - even if you're working with an experienced agent.
In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers, a polished appraisal from Pamela Evans can:
Improvements to add value to your homeThere are many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home -- and Pamela Evans can help with that. Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it... Do I need to finish my closet remodel... Almost any project will affect value in some way. But not everything will have an equal impact. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.
We'll step in and help you make these decisions. Pamela Evans appraisers have no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price -- your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Pamela Evans. When it comes to investing in your home and setting a fair sale price, we'll help homeowners make the wisest decisions.
