Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people 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 amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a precise listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to list your property, then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected sales houses in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market, this is a crucial step.

In our opinion, though, you should also get an appraisal from a professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

And that's where can help you! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

An efficient appraisal from can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have found an interested buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's shape inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unexpected headaches that can cause sales to go up in smoke
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Home improvements that add value
