Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Moody Appraisal Group, Inc.

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 much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract interested 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 on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a skillful listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to list your property, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable sale homes in your area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a crucial step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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

That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate 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".
