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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do 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 property is sitting still on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get an accurate listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your home? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected homes for sale in your area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market, this is a crucial step.

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

That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so 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 bring in buyers, and we can also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have found an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's state inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected headaches that can cause your sale to flop
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements that add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on 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 might not justify the time and costs involved.
