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 more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

In today's adapting market, using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a solid listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your home? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays comparable sales in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a vital step.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to listing your property - even if you're working with an experienced agent.
