Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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 house is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from P C Appraisal Services actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't 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 the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the best way to get an accurate listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market.

However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement, even if you're working with the most experienced agent.

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

A knowledgeable appraisal from P C Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find a prospective buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown predicaments that cause the process to flop
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

P C Appraisal Services can help you with these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
