Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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 more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of 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. Overpriced homes do not attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

In today's evolving market, using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a just listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to list your home? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays similar houses for sale 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 move.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before signing a Listing Agreement, even if you're working with an experienced agent.

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

Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers, and we can also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have an interested buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your house's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unexpected issues that can cause your sale to go up in smoke
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet 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. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. can help you with these important decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
