Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Abbott & Dartt Appraisal Service, LLC

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? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays a list of sales houses in your town. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion before signing a Listing Agreement, even if you've hired the most experienced agent.

That's where Abbott & Dartt Appraisal Service, LLC comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

Using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a factual listing price for your home in today's changing market. Contact us today.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them 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 realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home -- and Abbott & Dartt Appraisal Service, LLC can help with that. Should we paint the whole house before we sell it... Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel... Nearly any project has the potential to affect value in some way. Unfortunately, not all of them have an impact commensurate with their cost. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

Abbott & Dartt Appraisal Service, LLC can help you with these important decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent on commission will. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. A professional appraisal from Abbott & Dartt Appraisal Service, LLC helps you make the best-informed decisions when it comes to investments to add value and deciding on a profit-maximizing sales price.
