Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Saxton 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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, 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 value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

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

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your house? Quite often you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable homes for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

Even if you are working with the most accomplished real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.
