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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from Alaska Real Estate Appraisal actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a correct listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to list your home, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays a list of sales in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement, even if you have been working with the most experienced real estate agent.

That's where Alaska Real Estate Appraisal comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Improvements that add value to your home
