Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Canadian National Appraisers
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of 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. Overpriced homes will not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays comparable sales houses in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a crucial step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.
In our opinion, however, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your property - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.
That's where Canadian National Appraisers comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

Upgrades that improve your home's value
There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your home. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.
We'll step in and help make these important decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
