Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Real Property Metrics.

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

A lot of sellers are shocked 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 actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract interested buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And 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 factual listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

If you're working with an agent to list your home, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes similar sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a crucial step.

Even if you've hired the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Real Property Metrics can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so both 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".

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

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unknown disputes that cause the process to fold
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.
