Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact TNC Appraisal Service, Inc.

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 people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract serious 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 the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, using a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a skillful listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your property, more than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes a list of homes for sale in your area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a crucial step.

Even if you're working with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to wow potential buyers

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your property. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I 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. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the expenses involved.
