Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Di Cicco & Associates

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

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them 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 estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract interested buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get an accurate listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to sell your property? Quite often you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes comparable sale homes in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

But even if you've been working with an accomplished real estate agent , it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement.

That's where Di Cicco & Associates comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

A professional appraisal from Di Cicco & Associates can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have found a potential buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your house's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected headaches that cause the process to fall through
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements to add value

Di Cicco & Associates can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
