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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract interested buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a factual listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to list your home, then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected sales in your local area. It's a customary 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 standard process.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you've hired the most experienced real estate agent.

And that's where Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

A polished appraisal from Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown difficulties that cause the process to fold
  • Eliminate the wait 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 prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect 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.

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