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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from TNC Appraisal Service, Inc. 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 inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract interested 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. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get an expert listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, more than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays similar homes for sale in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a vital step.

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

That's where TNC Appraisal Service, Inc. 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".

TNC Appraisal Service, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers, and we can also:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected quandaries that cause the process to fizzle
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements that add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be 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 third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
