Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from OK Appraisals

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

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 a professional appraisal actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious 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. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a fair listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your property, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes competing sale homes in your local area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very common) step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you've hired an expert real estate agent , it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement.

And that's where OK Appraisals comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so both 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".

OK Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have found an interested buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your home's state inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected obstacles that can cause your sale to fall through
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

OK Appraisals can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Ask yourself "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete 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 help you make some of these important decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
