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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of 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 you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

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

If you're working with an agent to list your home, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays comparable sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point in 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 move.

In our opinion, however, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

And that's where Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

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

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's shape inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unknown problems that can cause sales to fizzle
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.
