Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Gloria Ostrowski 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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. 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 decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract buyers, which means you have wasted time on 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. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a sharp listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your home, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected sales in your local area. It's a good starting point when deciding 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 natural process.

Even if you've hired the most experienced real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Gloria Ostrowski Appraisals, Inc. can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Gloria Ostrowski Appraisals, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to buyers, and we can also:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you find a potential buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Decrease the chances of unknown disputes that cause the process to break down
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Gloria Ostrowski Appraisals, Inc. can help you with these decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
