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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

In today's evolving market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a precise listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your property, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of sale homes in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market, this is a crucial step.

But even if you have hired the most expert real estate agent, it's in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

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

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

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you find a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected complications that can cause sales to fold
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the expenses 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 finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from Moody Appraisal Group, Inc. is based on our efforts to complete your report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price — our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report.
