Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Johnston Appraisal Company
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an 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 potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.
With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a true listing price for your home.Contact us
Working with a real estate agent to sell your home? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable homes for sale in your area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.
In our opinion, though, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.
And that's where Johnston Appraisal Company comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so 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".
Johnston Appraisal Company can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue potential buyers, and we can also:
Home improvements that add value
