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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract interested buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

In today's evolving market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a factual listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your house? Quite often you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays competing sales in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining 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 natural process.

Even if you've hired the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.

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

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have found an interested buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's state inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unexpected headaches that can cause your sale to go up in smoke
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

LHC Appraisals can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "Should we paint the whole 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.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. LHC Appraisals appraisers have no vested interest in the amount the home sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
