Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Deer Creek Appraisals

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 much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us 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 inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract interested buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting 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 sitting still on the market.

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

Working with a real estate agent to sell your house? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a 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 is a vital step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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