Pre-Listing Appraisal Services 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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from LHC Appraisals actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home 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 house won't attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. 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 home is sitting still on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a correct listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your property, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays comparable houses for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a crucial step.

In our opinion, though, you should also get an appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where LHC Appraisals comes in! We can 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.

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

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have found a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's state inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unexpected headaches that can cause sales to crumble
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements that add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

LHC Appraisals can help you with these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
