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. Working with a real estate agent to sell your house? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your town. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a crucial step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, 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. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract interested buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Should we paint the whole house before we sell it... Would it help to put in that new bathroom... Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel... Practically any project has the potential to affect value in some way. But not everything will have the same return on investment. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. appraisers have no vested interest in what amount your house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price -- our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report. So a professional appraisal from Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. will help you make the best decisions when it comes to investments to add value and settling on a fair listing price.
