Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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.

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 actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

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

If you're working with an agent to list your property, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes competing homes for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

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 the Listing Agreement.

And that's where OK Appraisals comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so 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".
