Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from 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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Herrin Appraisal Company actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a just listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to list your home, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays selected sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, though, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from a licensed professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your property - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

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

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you find an interested buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your house's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unexpected predicaments that can cause your sale to fold
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

Herrin Appraisal Company can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before 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 complete my kitchen 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. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
