Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a correct listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

If you're working with an agent to list your property, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected sales houses in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market, this is a really important step.

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

And that's where Brent Turney Inc. comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Brent Turney Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will draw in potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown headaches that cause the process to break down
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

We'll step in and help make these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
