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

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Are you working with an agent to list your home? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays similar sale homes in your town. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a logical process.

Even if you've hired the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement.

And that's where DRB Appraisal can help you! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a solid listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market. Contact us today.

DRB Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue buyers, and we can also:
  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you find a a prospective buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your home's state inside and out
  • Make yourself aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unknown quandaries that cause negotiations to fall through
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them 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 buyers, which means you squander time and (not to mention) money and still have no offers. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

Home improvements that add value

There are many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home -- and DRB Appraisal can help with that. Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel... Virtually any project will affect value in some way. But, not all of them have an effect commensurate with their cost. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. When it comes to investing in your house and setting a fair sales price, A professional appraisal from us will help homeowners like you make the best decisions.
