Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Linn AppraisalsAre you working with an agent to list your house? Quite often they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital (and very common) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.
Even if you're working with the most experienced 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.
A professional appraisal from Linn Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we'll also:
Improvements to add valueLinn Appraisals can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Should I put in that third bathroom... Should I complete my kitchen remodel... Virtually any project has the potential to affect value in some way. Unfortunately, not all of them have an impact commensurate with their cost. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.
Linn Appraisals will step in and help you make these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price -- our fees are based on efforts to complete your report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Linn Appraisals. When it comes to investing in your home and setting a fair sales price, we'll help you make the smartest decisions.
