Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Kent & Associates Appraisal.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Kent & Associates Appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a factual listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to sell your property? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays a list of sales in your town. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Kent & Associates Appraisal comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Kent & Associates Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue buyers, and we can also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you find a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected predicaments that cause the process to fold
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Our fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
