Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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 house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people 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 value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don'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 all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

In today's adapting market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a true listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to sell your home? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays similar sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

But even if you've hired the most accomplished real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. can help you! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

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 a valuable negotiating tool once you have a prospective buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unknown quandaries that can cause sales to deteriorate
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your property. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
