Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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 more than they estimated, 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. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

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

Working with a real estate agent to sell your house? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays similar homes for sale in your area. It's a good 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 standard move.

Even if you've hired an accomplished real estate agent , it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before signing a Listing Agreement.

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

LHC Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you find a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's condition inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unknown problems that can cause sales to fall through
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements to add value

LHC Appraisals can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to 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 might improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

LHC Appraisals can help you with these decisions. LHC Appraisals appraisers have no vested interest in what amount your house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from LHC Appraisals is based on our efforts to finalize your report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price — our fees are based on efforts to finalize your report. So a professional appraisal from LHC Appraisals helps homeowners make the smartest decisions on investing in their house and settling on a fair price to sell at.
