Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Alaska Real Estate Appraisal.

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 house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us 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 price value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a sharp listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.

If you're working with an agent to list your home, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes a list of homes for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you are working with an experienced agent.

And that's where Alaska Real Estate Appraisal comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

An expert appraisal from Alaska Real Estate Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you find a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Reduce chances of unexpected messes that can cause sales to go up in smoke
  • Cut out the wait 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 property. Questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
