Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Gold Coast Appraisal Group 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 a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them 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 home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a true listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to list your house, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable sales in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

An expert appraisal from Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you find an interested buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Reduce chances of unknown issues that can cause sales to flop
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC will step in and help you make these decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC is based on our efforts to complete the report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Gold Coast Appraisal Group LLC.
