Working with a real estate agent to sell your house? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays competing sales houses in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding 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 move.

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

That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

A qualified appraisal from RCB Appraisal Service can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have an interested buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your house's quality inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected difficulties that can cause sales to fall through
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. RCB Appraisal Service appraisers have no vested interest in what amount the home sells for, unlike an agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
