Pricing Your Home
Special Promotion - Free Appraisal
(promo code below)

In order to help you properly price your home, Robert will pay a 3rd party appraiser to do an appraisal on your home. 

Most seller's play a guessing game when deciding what price to list at.  Often times, sellers price their home by speaking with a few Realtors and asking them what they think the home is worth.  Unfortunately, few agents are highly trained in property valuation.  Many agents actually give an inflated price hoping that by doing so they will be first in line to get the listing (Realtors call it "buying the listing").  It's unfortunate, but many sellers give the listing to whichever agent tells them their home is worth the most, even if the agent shows little evidence to justify their conclusion.  What often results is a home that sits on the market for several months and later the agent hassles the owner for a listing price reduction.  This is no way to price or sell a home.

Even though I am highly trained in valuation and am more than happy to help you determine a proper list price, I'm also willing to pay to have a non-biased 3rd party appraiser complete an appraisal to help determine the value of your home.  We can then use the appraisal to show buyers how we justified and determined the asking price.

A Word of Caution:
Do not rely on a refinance appraisal to price your home.  Re-Fi appraisals are done on behalf of lending institutions to make sure their investments are justified.  They are not done with the purpose of informing an owner what their home would actually sell for.  Values in Re-Fi appraisals are often quite different than a value in an appraisal where the appraisers job is to determine what the home will actually sell for at the current time.
