Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Crest Appraisal 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 these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract interested buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a proper listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to sell your house? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays selected homes for sale in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

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

And that's where Crest Appraisal Services comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Crest Appraisal Services can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected dilemmas that can cause your sale to fold
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements to add value
