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 them 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 estimated value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract potential 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. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a skillful listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to list your home? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of homes for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market, this is a crucial step.
