Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from 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. Working with a real estate agent to sell your home? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays comparable sale homes in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to listing your home - 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 real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

In today's adapting market, using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a just listing price for your home. Contact us today.

Moody Appraisal Group, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract buyers, and we can also:
  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you find a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's shape inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Make yourself aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected complications that cause the process to break down
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through
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 these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of 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. Overpriced homes don't attract serious buyers, which means you waste time and money and still have no prospects for buying your home. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home -- and Moody Appraisal Group, Inc. can help with that. Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it... Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel... Practically any project can influence value in some way. Unfortunately, not all of them have an effect commensurate with their cost. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. When it comes to investing in your house and deciding on a fair price to sell at, a professional appraisal from Moody Appraisal Group, Inc. will help homeowners make the best decisions.
