Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Zientek Appraisals

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Are you working with an agent to sell your home? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes a list of sales houses in your area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

But even if you're working with an accomplished real estate agent, it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.

That's where Zientek Appraisals comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your 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".

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

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious potential buyers, which means you squander time and money and still have no offers. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Improvements to add value to your home

Zientek Appraisals can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Should we paint the entire house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Should I complete my kitchen remodel... Nearly any project has the potential to affect value in some way. But not everything will have the same return on investment. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Zientek Appraisals can help you with these important decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price -- our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report. When it comes to investing in your home and settling on a fair sale price, A professional appraisal from us will help you make the sharpest decisions.
