  • Impartial/unbiased evaluation – Appraisers are more connected to the real estate valuation process.
  • Second opinion to Realtor valuation – Agents will often value homes high in order to get a listing. Valuable marketing time is lost as an overpriced home languishes on the open market.
  • For Sale by Owner (FSBO) – Alternatively, if homeowners do not wish to work with an Agent to sell their property, a Pre-Listing Appraisal is a good idea to set the selling price. Real estate websites often provide misleading or incorrect information that do not truly reflect the market value. Often relying on incorrect data. Appraisers aren’t compensated by the sale of a home and are required to remain unbiased by USPAP.
  • Identify potential problems early on – A Pre-Listing appraisal can outline repairs that may enhance or detract from the property’s overall appeal. Undertaking repairs early on can be a cost-effective solution that could in turn increase the final sale price.
  • Price negotiations – A seller’s Pre-Listing Appraisal report can be used to support a counteroffer.
  • Divorces/Bankruptcy – An appraisal can assist with establishing current market value for combining families, divorces and bankruptcy proceedings.
