Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Accolade 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. Are you working with an agent to sell your house? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays a list of homes for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is vital 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 agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

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

In addition to helping you decide on a realistic selling price so your home will interest buyers, a polished appraisal from Accolade Real Estate Appraisals can:
  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you find a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make yourself aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unknown predicaments that can cause your sale to crumble
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Accolade Real Estate Appraisals actually allowed these people 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 amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you waste time and money and are left with no prospects for buying your home. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

Home improvements that add value

There are many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home -- and Accolade Real Estate Appraisals can help with that. Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel... Nearly any project has the potential to affect value in some way. But each thing impacts value differently. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

An appraisal fee from Accolade Real Estate Appraisals is based on our efforts to finalize your report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. When it comes to investing in your house and settling on a fair sale price, A professional appraisal from us will help homeowners like you make the decisions.
