Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Saxton Appraisals, Inc..

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 house is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from Saxton Appraisals, Inc. actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a fair listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.

If you're working with an agent to sell your property, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes selected sales houses in your town. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a natural move.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where Saxton Appraisals, Inc. comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Saxton Appraisals, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected predicaments that cause negotiations to flop
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your home. Ask yourself "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.
