Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from J.S. Appraisals, Inc..

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 a real estate agent to sell your house? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays competing sale homes in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

Even if you've hired the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where J.S. Appraisals, Inc. can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get an accurate listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market. Contact us today.

An expert appraisal from J.S. Appraisals, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue buyers, and we'll also:
  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unknown messes that cause the process to crumble
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence 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'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's price value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract interested 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 house is sitting still on the market.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

J.S. Appraisals, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it... Do I need to complete my closet remodel... Nearly any project has the potential to affect value in some way. But each thing affects value differently. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

J.S. Appraisals, Inc. will step in and help make these important decisions. J.S. Appraisals, Inc. appraisers have no vested interest in the amount your house sells for, unlike an agent. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price -- our fees are based on efforts to complete the report. When it comes to investing in your house and settling on a fair sale price, a professional appraisal from J.S. Appraisals, Inc. helps you make the smartest decisions.
