Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Working with an agent to sell your house? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays a list of houses for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract serious potential buyers, which means you throw away time and money and are left with no prospects for buying your home. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage.

Home improvements that add value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Should we paint the entire house before we sell it... Does the fence need replacing... Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel... Nearly any project has the potential to 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 may not justify the costs you'd pay.
