Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Dakota Plains Appraisal LLC.
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Dakota Plains Appraisal LLC actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. 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. An overpriced property won't attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

Are you working with an agent to sell your home? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable sale homes in your town. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market.

That's where Dakota Plains Appraisal LLC comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so 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".

Home improvements that add value
In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.
