Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal 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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price 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. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a sharp listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.

Working with an agent to list your home? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected sales in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a natural process.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement, even if you have hired an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where Crowe Appraisals can help you! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

A skillful appraisal from Crowe Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will draw in potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you find a prospective buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's state inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown problems that can cause your sale to break down
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from Crowe Appraisals is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report. A professional appraisal from Crowe Appraisals will help homeowners make the sharpest decisions on investing in their house and setting a fair sale price.
