Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Crockett 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. Working with a real estate agent to list your house? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays similar sale homes in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very logical) step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

And that's where Crockett Appraisal Service, Inc. comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

In today's fluctuating market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a fair listing price for your home. Contact us today.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Crockett Appraisal Service, Inc. actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, 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 serious potential buyers, which means you throw away time and (not to mention) money and still have no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Does the fence need replacing... Should I finish my kitchen remodel... Practically any project can affect value in some way. But not everything will have the same bang for the buck. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

An appraisal fee from Crockett Appraisal Service, Inc. is based on our efforts to finalize your report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Crockett Appraisal Service, Inc.. When it comes to investing in your house and setting a fair sale price, we'll help homeowners make the smartest decisions.
