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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get an exact listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.

Working with an agent to sell your home? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market.

Even if you've hired the most accomplished real estate agent, it's in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.

That's where Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

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

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unknown obstacles that can cause your sale to fold
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements to add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your home. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent do. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
