Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from KEY INSIGHT.

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 house is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

With today's changing market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a just listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your property, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays a list of homes for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement, even if you have hired an experienced agent.

That's where KEY INSIGHT comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate 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".

A polished appraisal from KEY INSIGHT can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will interest buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unexpected predicaments that can cause sales to fizzle

Home improvements that add value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property There are many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home -- and KEY INSIGHT can help with that. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.
