Pre-Listing Appraisal Services
If you’re working with a real estate agent to list your property, more than likely they’ll provide you with a Comparative Market Analysis (CMA). It has the sales in your area to help determine your "Listing Price".
This step is vital if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home’s time on the market.
Why a Pre-Listing Appraisal Isn't The Same as a Realtor's CMA
Even if you're working with the most experienced real estate agent that knows the right neighborhood statistics and can put together a great CMA, it's still in your best interest to have an objective opinion of value.
That’s where a pre-listing appraisal comes in.
We can provide you with a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate measurement of square footage, an updated description of your home's features, and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar "comparable sales".

Improvements to Add Value
In addition to 'How much?', there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your home:
We can step in and help make these decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report and not a percentage of the sales price. So a professional appraisal can often help homeowners make the best decisions on investing in their homes and setting a fair sales price.
