Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Southern Star Real Estate Services
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, 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. 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. Overpriced homes don't attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.
Using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a sharp listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.Contact us
Working with an agent to list your property? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays similar sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a standard move.
In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced agent.
And that's where Southern Star Real Estate Services comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Home improvements that add value
In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.
