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 much more than they had planned, 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 over-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 you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get an exact listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.

Working with a real estate agent to list your property? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable houses for sale in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a vital (and very common) step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?"
