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 thought, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract serious 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 you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a proper listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to sell your house, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays competing sales in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market.
