We help property owners and real estate professionals in determining the true market value or appropriate list price of properties. A pre-listing appraisal will provide you with the market value of your property as well as help you sell it. Without a pre-listing appraisal there is potential for fewer offers, less money, and wasting time due to a list price that is too high or low.
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their property is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more than they thought they would when their property was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home’s value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts.
The pre-listing appraisal can be used for negotiation purposes; it adds credibility to your pricing, as well as decreases the chances that the buyer will back out of the offer.
