Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Crowe Appraisals

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 home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

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

Working with an agent to sell your house? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays comparable sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a vital step.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before signing the Listing Agreement, even if you have been working with the most experienced agent.
