Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Benchmark Appraisal Co., LLC.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable sales in your area. It's a customary 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 move.

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

And that's where Benchmark Appraisal Co., LLC can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a true listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market. Contact us today.

Benchmark Appraisal Co., LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in potential buyers, and we can also:
  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have a potential buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Make yourself aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unexpected issues that can cause your sale to flop
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, 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. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious buyers, which means you squander time and money and are left with no offers. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel... Almost any project can affect value in some way. But, not all of them have an impact commensurate with their cost. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll step in and help you make these important decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent on commission will. An appraisal fee from Benchmark Appraisal Co., LLC is based on our efforts to finalize your report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. A professional appraisal from Benchmark Appraisal Co., LLC will help homeowners like you make the best-informed decisions when it comes to investments to add value and setting a profit-maximizing listing price.
