Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Alpine Vista Appraisal.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. If you're working with a real estate agent to list your property, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays similar sales houses in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

In our opinion, however, you should also get an appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to listing your property - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where Alpine Vista Appraisal comes in! We can perform 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".

In today's fluctuating market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a skillful listing price for your home. Contact us today.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from Alpine Vista Appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it... Would it help to put in that third bathroom... Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel... Practically any project has the potential to affect value in some way. But each thing impacts value differently. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

We'll step in and help make these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. An appraisal fee from Alpine Vista Appraisal is based on our efforts to complete your report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. So a professional appraisal from Alpine Vista Appraisal helps you make the best-informed decisions when it comes to investments to add value and setting a profit-maximizing listing price.
