Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Crowe Appraisals.
A lot of sellers are shocked 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 sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. 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 realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract interested buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.
In today's evolving market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get an accurate listing price for your home.Contact us
Are you working with an agent to sell your home? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes selected sales houses in your local area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit.
In our opinion, though, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced agent.
And that's where Crowe Appraisals comes in! 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".
We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to potential buyers. A skillful appraisal from Crowe Appraisals can:
Improvements to add value to your home
There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house There are many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home -- and Crowe Appraisals can help with that. Ask yourself "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, 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 your expenses.
