Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Bobkat Appraisal Services
If you're working with an agent to sell your home, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable homes for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market, this is a vital step.
However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before signing the Listing Agreement, even if you have hired the most experienced real estate agent.
A skillful appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will interest potential buyers. 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 a professional appraisal actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract interested buyers, which means you waste time and money and are left with no prospects for buying your home. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.
