Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Certified Valuation Group LLC

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Are you working with a real estate agent to list your home? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays comparable sale homes in your town. It's a good starting point in 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 logical process.

However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement, even if you have been working with an experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

In today's evolving market, using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a correct listing price for your home. Contact us today.

In addition to assisting you with setting a realistic price to sell so your house will interest potential buyers, a qualified appraisal from Certified Valuation Group LLC can:
  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's state inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unknown problems that can cause sales to fall through
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract buyers, which means you throw away time and money and still have no prospects for buying your home. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home -- and Certified Valuation Group LLC can help with that. Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel... Almost any project can affect value in some way. But each thing affects value differently. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

We can step in and help you make these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price -- your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Certified Valuation Group LLC. When it comes to investing in your house and settling on a fair sale price, we'll help homeowners like you make the wisest decisions.
