Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Lumino Valuation Group, Inc.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Working with a real estate agent to list your home? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays comparable homes for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market, this is a vital step.

Even if you're working with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.

That's where Lumino Valuation Group, Inc. comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you waste time and money and are left with no prospects for buying your home. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage.

Improvements to add value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Does the tile need replacing... Should I complete my kitchen remodel... Nearly any project has the potential to influence value in some way. But each thing affects value differently. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price -- our fees are based on efforts to finalize your report.
