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 house is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract interested 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. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a proper listing price for your home in today's changing market.

If you're working with an agent to sell your home, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes competing sales in your town. It's a good starting point when 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 process.

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

That's where Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so 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".

Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will draw in buyers, and we can also:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have found a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's quality inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour

Home improvements that add value

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

We'll step in and help make these decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
