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 from us actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a correct listing price for your home.

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 (or CMA) that includes a list of sale homes in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's 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 before signing a Listing Agreement.

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

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

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected problems that cause the process to flop
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the expenses involved.

Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. can help you with these important decisions. Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. appraisers have no vested interest in the amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
