Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Crest Appraisal Services

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 an appraisal from Crest Appraisal Services actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's price value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get an accurate listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to sell your house, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays similar houses for sale in your area. 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 logical move.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Crest Appraisal Services comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

A qualified appraisal from Crest Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have found an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's quality inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unexpected complications that can cause sales to deteriorate
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

Crest Appraisal Services can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Crest Appraisal Services can help you with these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
