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 much more than they thought, 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. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

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

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your property? Quite often you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays comparable sales houses in your town. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market, this is a vital step.

Even if you're working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement.

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

A polished appraisal from LHC Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's state inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected disputes that can cause your sale to fizzle
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value to your home

LHC Appraisals can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to 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?" Many things which 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.

LHC Appraisals will step in and help make these decisions. LHC Appraisals appraisers have no vested interest in the amount your home sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
