Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Crest Appraisal Services.

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 house is much more than they thought, 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 over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't 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 sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a precise listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to list your home? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market.

In our opinion, though, you should also get an appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

And that's where Crest Appraisal Services comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate 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 assisting you with setting a realistic price to sell so your home will attract buyers. A qualified appraisal from Crest Appraisal Services can:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have an interested buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your house's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected messes that can cause your sale to deteriorate
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value

Crest Appraisal Services can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
