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.

Many people are surprised 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 these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. 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 don't attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a skillful listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

Are you working with an agent to list your home? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes similar sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point in determining 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 natural move.

In our opinion, however, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an 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 agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

We're also experienced in assisting you with setting a realistic price to sell so your home will attract potential buyers. A knowledgeable appraisal from Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. can:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you find an interested buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected issues that can cause sales to break down
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Ask yourself "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. 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 help you make some of these important decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
