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 much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a solid listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to list your property, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays comparable homes for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very logical) step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.
