Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact J Paul Appraisals
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from J Paul Appraisals actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract serious potential 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 on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.
With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a solid listing price for your home.Contact us today
Working with an agent to list your home? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable homes for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price.

Improvements to add value to your home
There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your home. 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 complete my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect.
