Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Hill Appraisal Associates, LLC.

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

A lot of sellers are shocked 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 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 value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

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

Working with a real estate agent to sell your home? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes a list of homes for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a natural process.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Hill Appraisal Associates, LLC can help you! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

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

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have a prospective buyer
  • Blow away 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 a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown difficulties that can cause sales to fold
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your home. Ask yourself "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Many things which 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 might not justify the time and costs involved.

Hill Appraisal Associates, LLC can help you with these decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
