Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from OK Appraisals

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

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from OK Appraisals actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a factual listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to list your home? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays similar sales in your local area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you have been working with the most experienced real estate agent.

And that's where OK Appraisals can help you! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

In addition to helping you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to potential buyers. A knowledgeable appraisal from OK Appraisals can:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you find an interested buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your house's condition inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown problems that can cause your sale to fizzle
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value

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

OK Appraisals can help you with these important 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 the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
