Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Certified County Appraisers, Inc.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. If you're working with An agent to sell your house, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays competing sales in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining 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 crucial step.

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've been working with the most experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a solid listing price for your home in today's adapting market. Contact us today.

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 a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold.

Overpriced homes don't attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

Improvements to add value

A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.
