Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Rapid Appraisal Services
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract serious 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 the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

Upgrades that improve your home's value
There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your house. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.
