Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Shamrock Appraisals, Inc.

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 home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. 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 sitting still on the market.

In today's adapting market, using a licensed appraiser is the best way to get an exact listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays similar sales houses in your area. 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 logical move.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from a professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your property - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both 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 Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you find an interested buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected obstacles that can cause your sale to go up in smoke
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
