Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Desert Sky Appraisers

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

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

In today's adapting market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a precise listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to list your property? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes competing sale homes in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very common) step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your 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 prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Desert Sky Appraisers comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

An expert appraisal from Desert Sky Appraisers can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have found a potential buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown predicaments that can cause your sale to flop
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value to your home

Desert Sky Appraisers can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

We'll step in and help you make these decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from Desert Sky Appraisers is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price — our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Desert Sky Appraisers.
