Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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 thought, so investing in an appraisal from Crowe Appraisals actually allowed these people 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 price value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a just listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to list your home? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays similar sale homes in your town. It's a customary 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 move.

But even if you are working with an experienced real estate agent , it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We'll do 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".

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

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found an interested buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown issues that can cause sales to fold
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements to add value

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

Crowe Appraisals can help you with these decisions. Crowe Appraisals appraisers have no vested interest in the amount the home sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
