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 home is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them 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 price value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract potential 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. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

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

Working with a real estate agent to sell your house? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays comparable homes for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

In our opinion, however, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

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

A professional appraisal from OK Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have found a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's quality inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown problems that can cause your sale to fall through
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
