Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Classic Valuations, Inc.Working with a real estate agent to list your house? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected homes for sale in your town. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

In addition to helping you decide on a realistic selling price so your home will entice potential buyers, a professional appraisal from Classic Valuations, Inc. can:
Upgrades that improve your home's valueThere are many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home -- and Classic Valuations, Inc. can help with that. Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it... Should I put in that third bathroom... Should I complete my kitchen remodel... Virtually any project has the potential to affect value in some way. But not everything will have an equal impact. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.
We'll help you make some of these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price -- your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report. When it comes to investing in your home and settling on a fair sales price, a professional appraisal from Classic Valuations, Inc. helps homeowners make the best decisions.
