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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract potential 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. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

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

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your house, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays similar sales in your area. It's a customary 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 process.

In our opinion, however, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from a professional 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.

That's where we come in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your 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".

Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in buyers, and we can also:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unknown predicaments that cause the process to flop
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
