Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact CAA Real Property Services, Inc.

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 sell your home? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays a list of sale homes in your town. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where CAA Real Property Services, Inc. can help you! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, 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 no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage.

Improvements to add value to your home

CAA Real Property Services, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Should we paint the whole house before we sell it... Does the tile need replacing... Should I finish my kitchen remodel... Virtually any project will affect value in some way. But not everything will have the same return on investment.

Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price -- our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report. When it comes to investing in your home and setting a fair sale price, a professional appraisal from CAA Real Property Services, Inc. will help homeowners make the best decisions.
