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. Are you working with a real estate agent to list your property? Quite often you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays competing sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

Even if you have been working with the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before signing the Listing Agreement.

That's where Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. comes in! 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 home's features.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get an expert listing price for your home. Contact us today.

In addition to helping you decide on a realistic selling price so your home will charm potential buyers, a polished appraisal from Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. can:
  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have found a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's state inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Make yourself aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected messes that cause the process to fizzle
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's price value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract potential 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 house is sitting still on the market.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home -- and Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. can help with that. Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it... Does the fence need replacing... Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel... Nearly any project will affect value in some way. But, not all of them have an impact commensurate with their cost. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price -- your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report. When it comes to investing in your house and setting a fair price to sell at, a professional appraisal from Shamrock Appraisals, Inc. helps homeowners like you make the decisions.
