Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from JC Appraisal LLCIf you're working with a real estate agent to sell your house, more than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected houses for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a vital (and very logical) step if your goals 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 - BEFORE putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.
JC Appraisal LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers, and we can also:
Improvements to add value to your homeThere are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Should I finish my closet remodel... Nearly any project has the potential to influence value in some way. But each thing affects marketability differently. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.
We can step in and help you make these important decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. An appraisal fee from JC Appraisal LLC is based on our efforts to complete your report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. When it comes to investing in your home and setting a fair sales price, a professional appraisal from JC Appraisal LLC will help homeowners like you make the wisest decisions.
