Real estate agents are quite often used to preparing comparative market analysis (CMA) reports that display a list of houses for sale in the area. It’s a good starting point in deciding a 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.
However, it is not always easy to find truly comparable properties to your home. What is it about the property that would attract attention from buyers? Are there other similar properties around? Even for the most experienced real estate agent, it can sometimes be difficult when the property is not your typical house for the neighborhood. It’s definitely in the client’s best interest to have an objective third-party’s opinion of value.
That’s where we can help! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you can have an accurate description of your house’s features, a detailed analysis of the market, and an analysis on the most recent and similar comparable sales or “comps” available.
With today’s evolving market conditions, a licensed appraiser is an invaluable asset to help set a precise listing price for your home.
As our marketplace changes, there has never been a greater need for knowing the true size of your home. Whether you’re looking to sell your home, or protest your property taxes, having an accurate report of your property’s true size can be an invaluable tool, as all too often the gross living area reported on public records differs from what actually exists. In either case, having accurate home measurements can save you money. Our house measurement service is an affordable solution for this.
Our appraisers have measured a combined total of well over 15,000 homes. They are trained on and adhere to the American National Standard for Single-Family Residential Buildings (ANSI® Z765) as a uniform standard to measure and calculate the square footage, or Gross Living Area (GLA), of all detached and attached single-family houses. Each measurement report comes with a clear description of all above-grade and below-grade living areas, so you will clearly and easily see how much bigger it is in Texas!
Perhaps your needs are more comprehensive than a simple verification of house size? In addition to measurement services, our appraisers can also utilize state-of-the-art LiDAR scanning technology to recreate a complete floor plan of your home.
Our floor plan recreation service can be a powerful tool for marketing your home! A floor plan can provide not only an approximation of overall house size, but the locations of interior walls, doors, appliances and fixed furniture/fixtures. These reports also provide room dimensions to give potential buyers an idea of the functional space each room in your property provides. Can they fit their king-side bed? This service can be very useful when prospective buyers view your listings.
According to Rightmove.com, adding a floor plan to a real estate listing can increase click-through rates by more than 50%. That’s a large increase for such a small addition!
