Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Kurb Service Appraisals.

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

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract 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 home is sitting still on the market.

With today's changing market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a fair listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to list your house? Quite often they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes similar homes for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market.

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

And that's where Kurb Service Appraisals can help you! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

In addition to helping you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers. A skillful appraisal from Kurb Service Appraisals can:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a prospective buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's state inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown complications that can cause your sale to fall through
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "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 everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.
