Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Aspen Appraisal Services
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from Aspen Appraisal Services actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.
Using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a true listing price for your home in today's changing market.Contact us today
Working with an agent to list your property? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your town. It's a good starting point when determining 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 process.
In our opinion, though, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced agent.
And that's where Aspen Appraisal Services comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Upgrades that improve your home's value
There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.
