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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them 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 a lot 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 home will not attract interested 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 home is sitting still on the market.

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

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your home? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes competing homes for sale in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very common) step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, however, you should also get an appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where Moody Appraisal Group, Inc. can help you! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

A knowledgeable appraisal from Moody Appraisal Group, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected issues that can cause sales to go up in smoke
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the expenses involved.

Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
