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 home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious potential 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 its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

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

If you're working with an agent to sell your property, then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes competing sales in your town. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

But even if you have hired the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement.

That's where Moody Appraisal Group, Inc. 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 comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Improvements that add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. 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 finish my kitchen remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We can step in and help make these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
