Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Moody Appraisal Group, 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 home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. 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. Overpriced homes will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a fair listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your house, more than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays selected houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a crucial step.

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

That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.
