Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Choice 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 a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract 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 its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a sharp listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your house? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays selected sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you've hired the most experienced real estate agent.

And that's where Choice Appraisals, Inc. can help you! 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".

  • Cut down the chances of unexpected dilemmas that can cause your sale to go up in smoke
