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. If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your house, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes competing sale homes in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement.

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

In today's fluctuating market, using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get an expert listing price for your home. Contact us today.

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 get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. 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 do not attract serious buyers, which means you squander time and money and are left with no prospects for buying your home. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage.

Improvements that add value to your home

Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Should I complete my closet remodel... Almost any project can influence value in some way. Unfortunately, not all of them have an effect commensurate with their cost. Remodeling your kitchen may 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 decisions. Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. appraisers have no vested interest in the amount your home sells for, unlike an agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. A professional appraisal from Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. helps homeowners make the sharpest decisions on investments to add value and deciding on a fair listing price.
