Indianapolis Pre-Listing Appraisal
January 14th, 2010 10:30 PM

With changes going on in the Indianapolis market, now more than ever you should seek the help of an Indiana Certified Appraiser to assist them in setting an asking price of your home.  Homes that are priced right from the beginning will sell much quicker. It is always a good idea to get an unbiased professional opinion of your home's value prior to listing it.  Many times it is also possible to have an appraiser evaluate active listings in your neighborhood to give you an idea about who your competition is and how they compare to your home. Pre-Listing appraisals also serve an additional purpose. An appraiser will generally take measurements of your home to get an accurate measurement of its square footage. This is especially important if you have made changes to your home, such as additions or the finishing of attic areas. The square footage of your home will be a big consideration for home buyers so it is important to be as accurate as possible when listing your home in a MLS. Unfortunately, many times Realtors will simply take your home square footage off the assessor records which may or may not be accurate. This could cause you to sell your home for less than what it is really worth.

An appraisal from Indianapolis Appraisals as part of your overall marketing strategy will give the ultimate credibility to your asking price. You'll have fewer hassles with offers and counter offers, and your sellers will be confident you're getting top dollar for the home. Plus, you may be selling yourself short on unique properties without an accurate, current appraisal. We're ready to help with excellent client service and fast turn-around times.
