Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact James Earp Appraisal Service
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from James Earp Appraisal Service actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-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 do not attract 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 home is sitting still on the market.
Hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a fair listing price for your home in today's adapting market.Contact us today
Working with an agent to list your property? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected sales houses in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining 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 standard process.
However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement, even if you're working with the most experienced real estate agent.
That's where James Earp Appraisal Service comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.
James Earp Appraisal Service can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will interest potential buyers, and we can also:
Upgrades that improve your home's value
In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the expenses involved.
