Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Nedra Colvin Appraisal Services

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 actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays 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.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a proper listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

Are you working with an agent to sell your house? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays similar sales houses in your town. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement, even if you're working with the most experienced real estate agent.

That's where we come in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Nedra Colvin Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's shape inside and out to impress buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown headaches that can cause sales to fold
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.
