Have confidence in your listing price 

‚ÄčWorking with a real estate agent to list your home? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes competing homes for sale in your town. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. 

Even if you're working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign a Listing Agreement. If you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell.

And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

Home improvements that add value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Does the carpet need replacing... Do I need to complete my closet remodel... Virtually any project can affect value in some way. Unfortunately, not all of them have an impact commensurate with their cost. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

Lancaster Appraisal Group can help you with these important decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. An appraisal fee from Lancaster Appraisal Group is based on our efforts to finalize your report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. When it comes to investing in your house and settling on a fair sales price, a professional appraisal from Lancaster Appraisal Group will help you make the wisest decisions.
