Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Nordquist Appraisal LLC

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

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's 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 have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the best way to get an expert listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to list your home? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of homes for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where Nordquist Appraisal LLC can help you! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Nordquist Appraisal LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have an interested buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected complications that can cause your sale to fizzle
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your home. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

Nordquist Appraisal LLC will step in and help make these important decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
