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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, 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 interested 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 on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

In today's adapting 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 house, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays similar sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market, this is a crucial step.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We can perform 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".

In addition to assisting you with setting a realistic selling price so your home will entice buyers. A qualified appraisal from P C Appraisal Services can:

Improvements that add value to your home

P C Appraisal Services can help you answer the many 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?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.
