Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Kavan Anderson.

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 list your property? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays a list of sale homes in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very common) step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement, even if you are working with the most experienced real estate agent.

And that's where Kavan Anderson comes in! We can do 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".

In today's ever-changing market, using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a solid listing price for your home. Contact us today.

In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will charm buyers, a polished appraisal from Kavan Anderson can:
  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have a an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Make yourself aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected disputes that cause the process to fall through
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from Kavan Anderson actually allowed these sellers 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 will not attract potential buyers, which means you throw away time and money and are left with no prospects for buying your home. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home -- and Kavan Anderson can help with that. Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it... Does the fence need replacing... Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel... Virtually any project can affect value in some way. But each thing affects value differently. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent on commission will. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price -- our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Kavan Anderson. When it comes to investing in your home and setting a fair sales price, we'll help homeowners make the smartest decisions.
