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

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Judge Appraisal actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of home 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 do not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a proper listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your house? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays comparable homes for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market, this is a really important step.

But even if you've been working with an experienced agent , it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement.

That's where Judge Appraisal comes in! We'll perform 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".

We're also experienced in assisting you with setting a realistic selling price so your home will attract potential buyers. A qualified appraisal from Judge Appraisal can:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have a prospective buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Reduce chances of unexpected obstacles that can cause sales to go up in smoke
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property There are many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home -- and Judge Appraisal can help with that. Questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.

We'll step in and help make these decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from Judge Appraisal is based on our efforts to complete the report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price.
