Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from JC Reynolds Appraisals, Inc.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your property, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays selected homes for sale in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market.

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

And that's where JC Reynolds Appraisals, Inc. can help you! We can do 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 home's features.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a true listing price for your home. Contact us today.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from JC Reynolds Appraisals, Inc. actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth a lot 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. Overpriced homes will not attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

Home improvements that add value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Do I need to finish my closet remodel... Virtually any project will influence value in some way. But not everything will have the same bang for the buck. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

JC Reynolds Appraisals, Inc. can help you with these important decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent on commission will. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. So please consider ordering an appraisal from JC Reynolds Appraisals, Inc.. When it comes to investing in your home and setting a fair price to sell at, we'll help homeowners make the smartest decisions.
