Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Romano & Associates

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 property? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes competing sales in your area. It's a good starting point in determining 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 vital step.

In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from a professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where Romano & Associates comes in! We'll 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 evolving market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a sharp listing price for your home. Contact us today.

In addition to assisting you with setting a realistic selling price so your home will bring in buyers, a professional appraisal from Romano & Associates can:
  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Make yourself aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected obstacles that cause negotiations to deteriorate
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Romano & Associates actually allowed these people 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 amount of value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract potential buyers, which means you throw away time and money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Should we paint the entire house before we sell it... Should I complete my kitchen remodel... Practically any project can affect value in some way. But not everything will have an equal effect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Romano & Associates appraisers have no vested interest in the amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. An appraisal fee from Romano & Associates is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. So a professional appraisal from Romano & Associates will help homeowners make the sharpest decisions on investments to add value and setting a fair sales price.
