Putting a house on the market in or near Jefferson County? Contact Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses your home's market value.

Selling on your own?

More and more LA homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, you need a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Lower the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to receive several thousand more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an overestimated assessment when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home allowing them to quickly sell it rather than waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.

Get a professional value opinion before listing

Even if you have with the most experienced agent, it's definitely a good idea to have an objective third-party's opinion of your home's value to signing a listing agreement. And that's where Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. comes in. We can furnish you with a pre-listing appraisal that will let you and your agent have a definitive writeup of your home's characteristics and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales which we typically refer to as "comps" in the appraisal industry.
