Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Shamrock Appraisals, Inc.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal 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 a lot 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. An overpriced home will not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a true listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.

Are you working with an agent to list your property? Quite often you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays comparable homes for sale in your local area. It's a customary 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 a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you're working with an experienced agent.

And that's where Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. can help you! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

We're also experienced in helping you decide on a realistic price to sell so your house will draw in buyers. A polished appraisal from Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. can:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have a potential buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your house's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected issues that can cause your sale to fizzle
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the expenses involved.

We can step in and help you make these important decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
