Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Lundquist Appraisals & Real Estate Services

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 house is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them 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 value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a true listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to list your house? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays selected houses for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a crucial step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you've hired the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.

That's where Lundquist Appraisals & Real Estate Services comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.
