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 a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people 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 realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

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

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays a list of sales houses in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a crucial step.

Even if you've been working with an accomplished real estate agent , it's in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

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

In addition to assisting you with setting a realistic price to sell so your house will charm potential buyers. An expert appraisal from LHC Appraisals can:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you find a prospective buyer
  • Wow potential buyers with written proof of your house's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unknown headaches that can cause sales to fold
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the expenses involved.

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