Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from LHC Appraisals

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from LHC Appraisals 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 inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to realistically price 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. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

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

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your property? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays similar houses for sale in your town. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you've hired an experienced agent.

And that's where LHC Appraisals comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

An expert appraisal from LHC Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will draw in buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you find a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's condition inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unknown issues that can cause sales to flop
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. Questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the expenses involved.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
