Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from NC Appraisal Center

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 an appraisal from NC Appraisal Center actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract serious 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. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a factual listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your property? Quite often you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding 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.

But even if you are working with an expert agent , it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where NC Appraisal Center comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so both 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".

In addition to helping you decide on a realistic selling price so your home will bring in buyers. An efficient appraisal from NC Appraisal Center can:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found an interested buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your house's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unexpected quandaries that can cause your sale to flop
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

We can step in and help you make these important decisions. NC Appraisal Center appraisers have no vested interest in the amount your house sells for, unlike an agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
