Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc.

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

Many people are surprised 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 get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. 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. Overpriced homes will not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a factual listing price for your home.

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 a CMA) that includes a list of sales in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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

That's where we come in! We can 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.

Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected headaches that can cause your sale to flop
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value to your home

Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We can step in and help make these important decisions. Greater Orlando Appraisal Assoc., Inc. appraisers have no vested interest in what amount your home sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
