Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Cynthia A Davis (804) 262-5658

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 home? Quite often you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable sale homes in your local area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from a licensed professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where Cynthia A Davis (804) 262-5658 comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

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

We're also experienced in assisting you with setting a realistic price to sell so your home will charm buyers, a skillful appraisal from Cynthia A Davis (804) 262-5658 can:
  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have a a prospective buyer

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. 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. An overpriced home will not attract serious buyers, which means you waste time and (not to mention) money and still have no prospects for buying your home. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Would it help to put in that third bathroom... Should I complete my kitchen remodel... Nearly any project can affect value in some way. But not everything will have the same return on investment. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.

Cynthia A Davis (804) 262-5658 will step in and help make these important decisions. Cynthia A Davis (804) 262-5658 appraisers have no vested interest in what amount your house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. When it comes to investing in your house and setting a fair sales price, a professional appraisal from Cynthia A Davis (804) 262-5658 will help homeowners make the sharpest decisions.
