Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact West Valley Appraisal Services

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

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 West Valley Appraisal Services actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. 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 don't attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a sharp listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to sell your property? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays comparable sales in your town. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement.

That's where West Valley Appraisal Services comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

We're also experienced in helping you decide on a realistic price to sell so your house will attract buyers. An efficient appraisal from West Valley Appraisal Services can:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's quality inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles

  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

West Valley Appraisal Services can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Ask yourself "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. 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 step in and help you make these important decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
