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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract interested 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 the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get an accurate listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your property? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays comparable sales in your local area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement.

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 comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's shape inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles

Improvements to add value to your home

Moody Appraisal Group, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Ask yourself "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the expenses involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. 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 your home's sale price.
