Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Citiwide Appraisal

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 a real estate agent to sell your property? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays selected sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a natural move.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.

That's where Citiwide Appraisal 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".

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a just listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market. Contact us today.

A professional appraisal from Citiwide Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will interest potential buyers, and we'll also:
  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's state inside and out to impress buyers
  • Make yourself aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unknown quandaries that cause the process to fizzle
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's price value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

Home improvements that add value

There are many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home -- and Citiwide Appraisal can help with that. Should we paint the entire house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Should I complete my kitchen remodel... Practically any project will affect value in some way. But not everything will have the same bang for the buck. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Citiwide Appraisal appraisers have no vested interest in what amount your house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. An appraisal fee from Citiwide Appraisal is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. When it comes to investing in your house and settling on a fair sales price, A professional appraisal from us will help you make the smartest decisions.
