Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Personal Service Realty's Residential Valuation Group

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 a lot more than they expected, 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 inflated opinion of their home's estimated value 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 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 its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a correct listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your property, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected houses for sale in your area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before signing a Listing Agreement, even if you are working with the most experienced real estate agent.
