Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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.

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 them 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 decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious 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 sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a skillful listing price for your home in today's changing market.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your house? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes a list of sales in your area. It's a customary starting point when 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 logical process.

But even if you have been working with the most accomplished agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

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

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

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found an interested buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unknown obstacles that can cause sales to flop
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value

You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the expenses involved.
