Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Chaparral Real Estate Appraisals.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Working with a real estate agent to sell your house? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays comparable homes for sale in your town. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a crucial step.

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

That's where Chaparral Real Estate Appraisals comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your 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".

In today's ever-changing market, using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get an expert 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 a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers 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. Overpriced homes don't attract serious 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 the mortgage.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Does the tile need replacing... Do I need to finish 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 expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Chaparral Real Estate Appraisals can help you with these decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent on commission will. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price -- your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report. A professional appraisal from Chaparral Real Estate Appraisals helps homeowners make the best decisions when it comes to investments to add value and deciding on a smart price at which to sell.
