Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Perimeter Appraisal Services, LLC

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 list your property? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable sales in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a vital step.

In our opinion, though, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from a licensed professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to listing your property - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where Perimeter Appraisal Services, LLC comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

In today's changing market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a true listing price for your home. Contact us today.

Perimeter Appraisal Services, LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers, and we can also:
  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found a an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's quality inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Make yourself aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Cut down the chances of unknown predicaments that can cause sales to flop
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, 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 amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract serious buyers, which means you waste time and (not to mention) money and are left with no prospects for buying your home. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Home improvements that add value

There are many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home -- and Perimeter Appraisal Services, LLC can help with that. Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Does the tile need replacing... Do I need to complete my closet remodel... Practically any project has the potential to influence value in some way. But not everything will have an equal impact. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. An appraisal fee from Kenny Roberson Appraisals is based on our efforts to finalize your report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. So a professional appraisal from Kenny Roberson Appraisals helps you make the sharpest decisions on investments to add value and deciding on a smart price at which to sell.
