Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Belanger Appraisals, Inc

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your house? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected sales houses in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

Even if you've been working with an experienced agent, it's in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Belanger Appraisals, Inc can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate 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 #1 way to get a fair listing price for your home in today's evolving market. Contact us today.

Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell.

Home improvements that add value

Belanger Appraisals, Inc can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Do I need to finish my closet remodel... Almost any project can influence value in some way. But not everything will have the same bang for the buck. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll step in and help make these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. An appraisal fee from Belanger Appraisals, Inc is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. When it comes to investing in your house and setting a fair sale price, a professional appraisal from Belanger Appraisals, Inc will help homeowners like you make the wisest decisions.
