Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal 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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from LHC Appraisals actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. 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 don't 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 the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the best way to get an expert listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

If you're working with an agent to sell your home, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of homes for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market.

But even if you have been working with the most expert real estate agent, it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your home'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 appeal to potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have found an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's state inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Reduce chances of unexpected dilemmas that can cause sales to fall through
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

LHC Appraisals can help you with these decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
