Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from James Earp Appraisal Service.

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 more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from James Earp Appraisal Service actually allowed them 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 amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays 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 still sitting on the market.

In today's evolving market, using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a true listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your property? Quite often they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes selected sales in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a logical move.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate 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 draw in potential buyers. A professional appraisal from James Earp Appraisal Service can:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unknown issues that cause negotiations to fold
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to 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?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the expenses involved.

Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
