Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact James Earp Appraisal Service
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house 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. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's price value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not 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 house sits on the market.
In today's evolving market, using a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a correct listing price for your home.Contact us today
If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays a list of houses for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market.
However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement, even if you are working with the most experienced real estate agent.
That's where we come in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Improvements to add value
James Earp Appraisal Service can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.
