Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from 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 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 price value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a sharp listing price for your home in today's changing market.

If you're working with an agent to list your house, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes selected homes for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign a Listing Agreement, even if you have been working with an experienced agent.

And that's where TNC Appraisal Service, Inc. comes in! We can do 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".

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a prospective buyer

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.
