Pre-Listing Appraisal Services 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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract serious potential 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 the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a fair listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your home? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable sales 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 home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing the Listing Agreement, even if you have been working with the most experienced agent.

And that's where Herrin Appraisal Company comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.
