Pre-Listing Appraisals FL

A pre-listing appraisal could help you sell your Brevard County, FL home.

If you have enlisted a real estate agent to help sell your property, the first thing they’ll probably do is provide you with a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) that lists sales in your area. This will give you a starting point in determining your “Listing Price” and will help minimize your home’s time on the market.

But even the most experienced real estate agent can’t evaluate your home the way an appraiser can. As an objective third party, we can provide you with a pre-listing appraisal that gives you and your agent an accurate description of your home’s features. We also provide a detailed analysis of the most recent, similar comparable sales, or “comps.” In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home’s condition inside and out
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer or his mortgage company to get the appraisal done on their own
  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through

Some people have an inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts.

Value-Adding Improvements

When you are listing your home, the most obvious question is what price to list. But there are other important questions to ask before putting your home on the market, questions like, “Do we need to paint the house before we sell it?”, “Would adding a third bathroom be worthwhile in getting the house sold?”, “Should we complete the kitchen remodel?” Most upgrades affect a home’s value, however, when it comes to selling your home, all upgrades are NOT created equal. Remodeling your kitchen may increase your home’s appeal, but probably won’t add nearly enough value to justify the expense.

Your Paris Realty appraiser can step in and make these decisions. While a real estate agent has a vested interest in the home’s selling price, an appraiser is an objective third party who can help homeowners make the best decisions for their homes. Our appraisal fees are based solely on the work it takes to complete the report; you can rest assured that the advice you get from us is completely objective and unbiased.
