Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Jarvis Appraisal Service

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Working with a real estate agent to list your house? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes similar sales in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining 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.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Should we paint the whole house before we sell it... Do I need to complete my closet remodel... Practically any project will influence value in some way. But not everything will have the same return on investment. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the expenses involved.

An appraisal fee from Jarvis Appraisal Service is based on our efforts to complete the report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. When it comes to investing in your house and deciding on a fair sale price, a professional appraisal from Jarvis Appraisal Service will help you make the best decisions.
