Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Spencer Appraisal Services, 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 a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get an accurate listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your house? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement, even if you are working with an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where Spencer Appraisal Services, Inc. comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

A qualified appraisal from Spencer Appraisal Services, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's shape inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected problems that cause the process to crumble
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

Spencer Appraisal Services, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
