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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract 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 the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, using a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a factual listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to list your home? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays comparable sale homes in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very common) step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you've hired the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

That's where Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate 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 assisting you with setting a realistic price to sell so your home will attract buyers. A polished appraisal from Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. can:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have found an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's state inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Reduce chances of unknown difficulties that can cause sales to go up in smoke
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Ask yourself "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
