Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Crandall Appraisal ServiceWorking with an agent to sell your home? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes a list of homes for sale in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a natural process.
But even if you are working with an experienced real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.
In addition to assisting you with setting a realistic selling price so your house will bring in potential buyers, a professional appraisal from Crandall Appraisal Service can:
Improvements that add value to your homeIn addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Should I put in that third bathroom... Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel... Nearly any project can influence value in some way. But each thing affects value differently. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.
Crandall Appraisal Service can help you with these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price -- your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report. A professional appraisal from Crandall Appraisal Service will help homeowners make the decisions on investments to add value and settling on a profit-maximizing sales price.
