Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from 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 home is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. actually allowed these people 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 value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. 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 is still sitting on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a skillful listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to sell your house? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes a list of homes for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market, this is a crucial step.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement, even if you've been working with the most experienced real estate agent.

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

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

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have an interested buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your house's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unknown dilemmas that can cause sales to fold
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements that add value to your home

Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
