Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Tortorella Appraisals, Inc.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Are you working with an agent to list your house? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes competing sales in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a standard process.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.

That's where Tortorella Appraisals, Inc. comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

In today's ever-changing market, using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get an exact listing price for your home. Contact us today.

Tortorella Appraisals, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract potential buyers, and we can also:
  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you find a an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's state inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make yourself aware of problems
  • Decrease the chances of unknown messes that cause the process to flop
  • Do away with waiting 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 home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us 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 property won't attract serious buyers, which means you throw away time and money and are left with no prospects for buying your home. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

Tortorella Appraisals, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Should I complete my kitchen remodel... Practically any project can influence value in some way. Unfortunately, not all of them have an effect commensurate with their cost. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. So a professional appraisal from Tortorella Appraisals, Inc. helps you make the sharpest decisions on investments to add value and setting a smart sales price.
