Pre-Listing Appraisal Services 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.

So many people are blown away 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 get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a precise listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your house? Quite often they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing homes for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point in 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 natural move.

Even if you've hired the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement.

That's where McCarthy Real Estate, Inc., Appraisal Services comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate 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".
