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 more than they estimated, 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. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes 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 sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

In today's adapting market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a fair listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to list your home? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your town. It's a good starting point when deciding 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 logical process.

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

That's where we come 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 comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.
