Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from VA-MD Appraisal Group, LLC.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from VA-MD Appraisal Group, LLC. actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth a lot 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 home won't attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home 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.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a sharp listing price for your home in today's changing market.

If you're working with an agent to list your house, more than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of houses for sale in your area. It's a customary 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 logical process.

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

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

A polished appraisal from VA-MD Appraisal Group, LLC. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected difficulties that can cause sales to flop
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

VA-MD Appraisal Group, LLC. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from VA-MD Appraisal Group, LLC. is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price — our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report. A professional appraisal from VA-MD Appraisal Group, LLC. helps you make the best decisions when it comes to investing in their homes and settling on a fair price to sell at.
