Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Baldwin & Hufstetler Real Estate Appraiser

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your house? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining 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 an appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where Baldwin & Hufstetler Real Estate Appraiser comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a skillful listing price for your home in today's evolving market. Contact us today.

Baldwin & Hufstetler Real Estate Appraiser can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers, and we can also:
  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have found a a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's state inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown difficulties that can cause sales to fold
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract interested buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

Home improvements that add value

There are many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home -- and Baldwin & Hufstetler Real Estate Appraiser can help with that. Should we paint the whole house before we sell it... Should I put in that new bathroom... Do I need to finish my closet remodel... Almost any project will affect value in some way. Unfortunately, not all of them have an impact commensurate with their cost. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

Baldwin & Hufstetler Real Estate Appraiser can help you with these important decisions. Baldwin & Hufstetler Real Estate Appraiser appraisers have no vested interest in what amount your house sells for, unlike an agent. An appraisal fee from Baldwin & Hufstetler Real Estate Appraiser is based on our efforts to complete your report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. So a professional appraisal from Baldwin & Hufstetler Real Estate Appraiser will help homeowners like you make the best decisions when it comes to investments to add value and setting a profit-maximizing sales price.
