Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Nationwide Property Valuation

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'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a true listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to list your home? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable sales in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

In our opinion, though, you should also get an appraisal from a licensed professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to listing your property - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

And that's where Nationwide Property Valuation comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing

There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property There are many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home -- and Nationwide Property Valuation can help with that.
