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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers 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 amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a factual listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your property? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays comparable homes for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement, even if you are working with an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where McCarthy Real Estate, Inc., Appraisal Services can help you! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

McCarthy Real Estate, Inc., Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's condition inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected difficulties that cause negotiations to fall through
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your house. Questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
