Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal 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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers 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 realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't 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. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a solid listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

Working with a real estate agent to list your home? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing sales in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

But even if you have been working with the most expert agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

A qualified appraisal from Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have a prospective buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected issues that cause the process to go up in smoke
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your property. Questions like "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 finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll step in and help make these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
