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.

Many people are surprised 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 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 decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a true listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to sell your property? Quite often you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes competing sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, though, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

And that's where Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. comes in! We can perform 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.

We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will draw in potential buyers. A professional appraisal from Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. can:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Wow potential 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
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected predicaments that cause negotiations to crumble
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your home. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new 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. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
