Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Herrin Appraisal Company

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 from us actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. 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. An overpriced property won't attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

In today's changing market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a correct listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to list your home? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays a list of sales houses in your area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

Even if you've been working with an expert real estate agent , it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement.

That's where Herrin Appraisal Company comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

Herrin Appraisal Company can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have found a potential buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown difficulties that can cause sales to crumble
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Ask yourself "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.

We'll step in and help make these important decisions. Herrin Appraisal Company appraisers have no vested interest in the amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
