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.

So many people are blown away 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 them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a fair listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your property? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays competing 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 home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a crucial step.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

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

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your house's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unexpected issues that can cause your sale to crumble
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

We'll step in and help make these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from Di Cicco & Associates is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of the sales price.
