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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. 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 will not attract interested buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. 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 property is sitting still on the market.

In today's evolving market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a correct listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to list your home, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes competing sales in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

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

That's where Brent Turney Inc. comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

A professional appraisal from Brent Turney Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your house's state inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Reduce chances of unknown problems that can cause your sale to deteriorate
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

Brent Turney Inc. will 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 your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
