Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from P C Appraisal Services

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

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a factual listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to list your home? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays a list of sale homes in your area. It's a good starting point in 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.

Even if you have been working with the most expert agent, it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

We're also experienced in helping you decide on a realistic price to sell so your home will intrigue buyers. A skillful appraisal from P C Appraisal Services can:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to impress buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unknown issues that can cause your sale to deteriorate
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Home improvements that add value

P C Appraisal Services can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
