Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from The Poppell Appraisal Firm, Inc..

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Working with an agent to list your home? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes comparable sales houses in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market, this is a vital step.

However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement, even if you've hired an experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both 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 evolving market, using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a fair listing price for your home. Contact us today.

  • Be a an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you find a potential buyer

  • Reduce chances of unexpected headaches that can cause sales to deteriorate
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people 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 a lot 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 property won't attract buyers, which means you waste time and (not to mention) money and still have no offers. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Improvements to add value

The Poppell Appraisal Firm, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Should I finish my kitchen remodel... Practically any project can influence value in some way. But, not all of them have an impact commensurate with their cost. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your 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. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price -- your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report. So a professional appraisal from The Poppell Appraisal Firm, Inc. helps you make the best-informed decisions on investments to add value and settling on a smart sales price.
