Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, 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 over-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 do not attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a precise listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to sell your house, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays competing sales in your local area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a crucial step.

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 before signing a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Moody Appraisal Group, Inc. can help you! 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 house's features.

Moody Appraisal Group, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's condition inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unknown complications that can cause your sale to fall through
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

Moody Appraisal Group, Inc. will step in and help you 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 finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
