Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from ARV, Inc..

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. If you're working with a real estate agent to list your property, more than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable sales houses in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a crucial step.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where ARV, Inc. comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your 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".

In today's changing market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a skillful listing price for your home. Contact us today.

A polished appraisal from ARV, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in potential buyers, and we'll also:
  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have found a a prospective buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make yourself aware of problems that might delay your closing

  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. 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 serious potential buyers, which means you squander time and money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it... Do I need to complete my closet remodel... Practically any project has the potential to influence value in some way. But not everything will have the same return on investment. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We'll step in and help you make these decisions. 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 complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. So please consider ordering an appraisal from ARV, Inc.. When it comes to investing in your home and settling on a fair sale price, we'll help homeowners like you make the wisest decisions.
