Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Greenville Appraisal Services

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 had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers 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 a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract 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 its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

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

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your property, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes similar sales houses in your town. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement, even if you've been working with an experienced agent.

And that's where Greenville Appraisal Services comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so both 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 Greenville Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have an interested buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown problems that can cause sales to deteriorate
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We can step in and help you make these important decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
