Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from McCarthy Real Estate, Inc., 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.

Many people are surprised 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 them 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 do not attract 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 you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

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

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your home, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays comparable sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market, this is a vital step.

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

That's where McCarthy Real Estate, Inc., Appraisal Services comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

A professional appraisal from McCarthy Real Estate, Inc., Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find a prospective buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your home's state inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour

Upgrades that improve your home's value

McCarthy Real Estate, Inc., Appraisal Services can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "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 finish my closet remodel?" 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.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
