Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Appraisals by Kana.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your property, then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes a list of houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point when deciding 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 natural process.

However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement, even if you've been working with an experienced real estate agent.

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

Using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a skillful listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market. Contact us today.

A polished appraisal from Appraisals by Kana can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will interest potential buyers, and we'll also:
  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you find a an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's shape inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make yourself aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected quandaries that cause negotiations to crumble
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, 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. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious buyers, which means you throw away time and money and still have no offers. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Should I complete my kitchen remodel... Almost any project will affect value in some way. But not everything will have the same return on investment. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent on commission will. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price -- our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Appraisals by Kana. When it comes to investing in your house and settling on a fair sales price, we'll help homeowners make the sharpest decisions.
