Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Walker Appraisal Services

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 a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Walker Appraisal Services actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much 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 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.

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

Working with a real estate agent to list your property? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of sale homes in your town. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market.

Even if you've hired the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement.
