Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Shamrock Appraisals, Inc.
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us 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 no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.
Using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get an accurate listing price for your home in today's evolving market.Contact us
Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your house? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes competing homes for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.
Even if you've hired the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement.
And that's where Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. comes in! We can perform 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".
We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic price to sell so your home will charm buyers. An efficient appraisal from Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. can:
Improvements to add value
In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.
We'll help you make some of these important 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.
