Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from The Appraisal Shoppe, Inc.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Working with a real estate agent to list your house? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected sales houses in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining 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 standard process.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where The Appraisal Shoppe, Inc. comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

In today's fluctuating market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a precise listing price for your home. Contact us today.

The Appraisal Shoppe, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers, and we can also:
  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found a potential buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make yourself aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown obstacles that can cause sales to crumble
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Should we paint the entire house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Should I finish my closet remodel... Practically any project can affect value in some way. But each thing affects marketability differently. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

The Appraisal Shoppe, Inc. 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 fees are not a percentage of the sales price -- your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from The Appraisal Shoppe, Inc.. When it comes to investing in your home and settling on a fair price to sell at, we'll help homeowners make the smartest decisions.
