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'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. actually allowed them 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 realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home 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 home is still sitting on the market.

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

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your home? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays a list of houses for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. comes in! We can 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".

In addition to helping you decide on a realistic price to sell so your home will bring in potential buyers. A qualified appraisal from Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. can:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you find an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's state inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unknown complications that can cause your sale to fizzle
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value to your home

Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
