Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact DMJ Appraisals

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Working with a real estate agent to list your home? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes a list of sales in your area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market, this is a vital step.

But even if you have been working with the most accomplished real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign a Listing Agreement.

And that's where DMJ Appraisals comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get an exact listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market. Contact us today.

A professional appraisal from DMJ Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to potential buyers, and we'll also:
  • Be a an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you find a potential buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown headaches that can cause your sale to deteriorate
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, 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. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value and an appraisal helped them 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 no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Improvements to add value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it... Would it help to put in that new bathroom... Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel... Practically any project can influence value in some way. But not everything will have an equal impact. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent on commission will. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. When it comes to investing in your house and setting a fair price to sell at, a professional appraisal from DMJ Appraisals will help homeowners like you make the best decisions.
