Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from KEY INSIGHT.
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, 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 do not attract serious 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 its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.
Hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a true listing price for your home in today's changing market.Contact us today
If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your house, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays selected sales houses in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.
However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing a Listing Agreement, even if you've been working with the most experienced real estate agent.
That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

Upgrades that improve your home's value
There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete 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. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.
We'll step in and help make these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent.
