Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Foster 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. If you're working with An agent to list your house, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes similar houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a crucial step.

In our opinion, though, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to listing your property - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

And that's where Foster Appraisal Services, LLC can help you! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a skillful listing price for your home. Contact us today.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from Foster Appraisal Services, LLC actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. 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. An overpriced property won't attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Improvements to add value

Foster Appraisal Services, LLC can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Should I finish my closet remodel... Practically any project can influence value in some way. Unfortunately, not all of them have an impact commensurate with their cost. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

An appraisal fee from Foster Appraisal Services, LLC is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Foster Appraisal Services, LLC. When it comes to investing in your home and setting a fair sale price, we'll help homeowners like you make the wisest decisions.
