Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from 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 a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a sharp listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your home? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes similar sales houses in your local area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, though, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where Crescent Appraisal Group, Inc. can help you! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent 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 intrigue buyers, and we can also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have found an interested buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Reduce chances of unexpected issues that can cause sales to deteriorate
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements that add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
