Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Brent Turney Inc.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from Brent Turney Inc. actually allowed them 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 price value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

With today's changing market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get an exact listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to list your house? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes a list of houses for sale in your area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a crucial step.

Even if you're working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before signing a Listing Agreement.

Improvements to add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. Ask yourself "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.
