When listing your home for sale, one of the most important steps is establishing the right asking price for your home. Pricing a home that has had numerous and costly improvements may present a challenge because cost does not always equal value.
Oftentimes homeowners would like to price their home for an amount that would help them recover their costs, but this may not be realistic. That’s where a pre-listing appraisal from Lexington Appraisals comes in. We pride ourselves in our ability to provide you with the most accurate value for your home.
Real estate agents do provide a more market-derived estimate of value for a home than the homeowner can; however, but even they do not go into nearly as much detail as an appraiser does. Additionally, in today’s market, an agent may recommend a lower price (because of depreciation in some areas) than what the homeowner may have expected.
A pre-listing appraisal from Lexington Appraisals can impress potential buyers with written proof of your home’s condition inside and out. In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price for attracting buyers, a pre-listing appraisal can be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. It can also make yourself aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that could delay or even cause a closing to fall through. All of our appraisals will be completed in agreement of the USPAP guidelines.
Investing in a professional appraisal from Lexington Appraisals could reveal unique qualities that result in a higher market value for your home. Don’t risk leaving several thousand dollars on the closing table. Call us today for your complimentary consultation.
