Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Cotter Valuation Group.Working with a real estate agent to list your home? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected sales houses in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.
In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from a professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.
In addition to helping you decide on a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers, a skillful appraisal from Cotter Valuation Group can:
Improvements to add valueIn addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Should I complete my kitchen remodel... Nearly any project will influence 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 may not justify the expenses involved.
We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Cotter Valuation Group appraisers have no vested interest in what amount your home sells for, unlike an agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Cotter Valuation Group. When it comes to investing in your house and setting a fair sale price, we'll help homeowners make the sharpest decisions.
