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 thought, 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. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still 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 evolving market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser 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 give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes similar houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market, this is a really important step.

Even if you're working with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign a Listing Agreement.

That's where NC Appraisal Center comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

A qualified appraisal from NC Appraisal Center can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will draw in buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's condition inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unknown issues that cause the process to break down
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

NC Appraisal Center can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. 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 new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.
