There are several reasons why this would be a good choice. First, if you list the property too high, it will sit on the market and after awhile it becomes “stale” which is why some realtors re-list the same listed property at a lower price. If you list the property too low, it may sell right away, however you could be losing out on thousands of dollars in your pocket. With a professional expert real estate appraisal, you will have an exact idea of what your home is worth and will be able to make an informed decision for the list price. The appraisal will also be a strong asset and valuable during negotiation.
While a realtor may provide comparable sales and give you a ballpark range of the value of your home, they are not qualified to make proper adjustments in a sales comparison analysis in order to provide an accurate estimate of market value. In addition, an appraiser is an independent third party that will be objective in the analysis, not motivated by a percentage of the sale.
We will provide the highest quality professional appraisal reports with a prompt response and turn- around time. Each report is personally tailored and detailed to the specific subject property and will display information in a clear and concise manner for you to understand. In order to expedite the process, once the report is complete, we can email you a PDF version of the report. Feel free to follow up with any questions you may have once you review the appraisal report.
You may also have questions about your property to see what would make financial sense before you list it. For example, “should we finish the basement?”, “should we paint the house?”, or “should we renovate the kitchens and bathrooms?” While it is a good idea to do some improvements, others may not be worth the expense as you won’t see the return on investment.
As real estate experts, we can offer an alternative option which is a consultation at a lower cost if you don’t want a full appraisal report. If you are interested in local market data such as current market conditions and trends, and an unbiased selection of comparable sales without adjustments, we can provide that to you as well.
Evan from American Realty Appraisals came out to our home last spring to conduct a home appraisal in support of our property tax appeal. He arrived promptly at the agreed time, was very professional and conducted a thorough walk through. We were very satisfied with the results of his appraisal - they were well-researched and accurately captured the features of the home. His appraisal proved to be a crucial element in a very successful tax appeal. I would gladly recommend his services to others.

When the interest rates dropped last year, I decided that it was a good idea to refinance my mortgage. I was recommended to American Realty Appraisals by my mortgage company. They were affordable, expedient, and ultimately put together a very comprehensive report with figures, photos, and local comps. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a professional and honest appraisal company.
Evan and his team at American Realty Appraisals are simply the best at what they do. As a mortgage banking professional, I have worked with dozens of appraisal firms over the years and I continually return to American Realty Appraisals when I can for their expert advice and service. I would highly recommend them if you are an individual looking to have your home appraised, or a banker looking to add a high quality appraisal firm to your list of approved appraisers.
Before I went to list my home, I hired Evan at American Realty Appraisals. I wanted an unbiased opinion of what my home was worth. He provided a thorough report that gave me piece of mind and a leg to stand on when it comes time to negotiate. I was also pleased with how fast he turned the report around after the inspection.

I highly recommend American Realty Appraisals for all of your residential real estate appraisal needs.
