Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract 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. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your house? Quite often you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very logical) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Improvements to add value to your home
In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the expenses involved.
