Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Valiant Valuation LLC

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 more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's price value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will 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 sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a true listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to list your house? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable sale homes in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing the Listing Agreement, even if you have hired an experienced agent.

And that's where Valiant Valuation LLC can help you! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

A professional appraisal from Valiant Valuation LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will draw in potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's shape inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Reduce chances of unexpected predicaments that can cause your sale to fall through
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from Valiant Valuation LLC is based on our efforts to complete the report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report. When it comes to investing in your home and setting a fair price to sell at, a professional appraisal from Valiant Valuation LLC will help homeowners make the sharpest decisions.
