Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Crowe Appraisals

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 house is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-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. An overpriced home will not attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

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

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your home, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes a list of sales in your local area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a logical move.

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

Home improvements that add value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home There are many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home -- and Crowe Appraisals can help with that. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" 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.
