Pre-Listing Appraisal Services

Want to know what your home is worth before you decide to sell?

If you’re working with a real estate agent to list your property, more than likely they’ll provide you with a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) that lists selected sales in your area as one of the first steps in determining what to set as the “Listing Price". But even if you're working with the most experienced real estate 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 we come in. We can provide you with a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar "comparable sales". In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price, a professional appraisal can be a valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer. Some have an inflated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal helps them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell.  An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing.

Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report and not a percentage of the sales price. So, a professional appraisal can often help homeowners make the best decisions on investing in their homes and setting a fair sales price.

In today's adapting market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a fair listing price for your home. Contact us today.
