Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Marin Appraisers

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Working with a real estate agent to list your house? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes selected houses for sale in your area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get the most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a natural move.

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 signing a Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

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

Marin Appraisers can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we can also:
  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have found a potential buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make yourself aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unknown problems that can cause your sale to deteriorate
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through
Many people are surprised 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. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage.

Improvements to add value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Would it help to put in that new bathroom... Do I need to finish my closet remodel... Practically any project can influence value in some way. But each thing impacts value differently. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Marin Appraisers appraisers have no vested interest in the amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report and not a percentage of the sales price. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Marin Appraisers. When it comes to investing in your house and setting a fair sale price, we'll help you make the most financially sound decisions.
