Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from JLD Evaluation, Inc..

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Are you working with an agent to sell your home? Quite often they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays similar homes for sale in your local area. It's a good 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 move.

Even if you're working with the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

And that's where JLD Evaluation, Inc. comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get an expert listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market. Contact us today.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from JLD Evaluation, Inc. 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 realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Improvements that add value to your home

JLD Evaluation, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it... Does the fence need replacing... Do I need to finish my closet remodel... Practically any project has the potential to affect value in some way. But not everything will have an equal effect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

JLD Evaluation, Inc. will step in and help 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 -- our fees are based on efforts to complete the report. When it comes to investing in your house and deciding on a fair price to sell at, a professional appraisal from JLD Evaluation, Inc. helps you make the wisest decisions.
