Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Tortorella Appraisals, Inc.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.
Tortorella Appraisals, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract potential buyers, and we can also:
Upgrades that improve your home's valueTortorella 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.
