Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Blue Moon Real Estate Appraisal

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Are you working with an agent to list your property? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing sales in your town. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

In our opinion, though, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from a professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where Blue Moon Real Estate Appraisal comes in! 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.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a factual listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market. Contact us today.

In addition to helping you decide on a realistic price to sell so your house will interest buyers, a qualified appraisal from Blue Moon Real Estate Appraisal can:
  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make yourself aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unexpected dilemmas that can cause your sale to fall through
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much 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 will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Should we paint the entire house before we sell it... Should I put in that third bathroom... Should I finish my closet remodel... Practically any project will affect value in some way. But not everything will have the same bang for the buck. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

Blue Moon Real Estate Appraisal can help you with these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Blue Moon Real Estate Appraisal. When it comes to investing in your house and setting a fair sale price, we'll help homeowners like you make the smartest decisions.
