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

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Are you working with an agent to list your property? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected sales in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

In our opinion, however, you should also get an appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where Baseline Appraisal Services comes in! We'll do 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".

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get an expert listing price for your home. Contact us today.

An efficient appraisal from Baseline Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in potential buyers, and we'll also:
  • Be a an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you find a a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make yourself aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Reduce chances of unexpected disputes that can cause sales to crumble
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you waste time and (not to mention) money and still have no offers. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

Improvements that add value to your home

Baseline Appraisal Services can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel... Almost any project can affect value in some way. But not everything will have the same bang for the buck. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. So a professional appraisal from Baseline Appraisal Services helps homeowners make the decisions on investments to add value and settling on a profit-maximizing sales price.
