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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, 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. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not 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 all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a proper listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to list your property, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays similar homes for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market.

But even if you have hired the most accomplished real estate agent, it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

That's where LHC Appraisals comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate 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".

We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic price to sell so your house will bring in potential buyers. A polished appraisal from LHC Appraisals can:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unknown difficulties that can cause your sale to fizzle
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, 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. LHC Appraisals appraisers have no vested interest in the amount the home sells for, unlike an agent. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. An appraisal fee from LHC Appraisals is based on our efforts to finalize your report, and are not a percentage of the sales price.
