Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc.

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 had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

In today's changing market, using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a solid listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your home, more than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes similar homes for sale in your town. It's a good starting point when determining 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 really important step.

In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from a licensed professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

An expert appraisal from Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have an interested buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected disputes that cause negotiations to deteriorate
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.
