Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Morrision Singleton

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Are you working with a real estate agent to list your house? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a vital (and very logical) step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement, even if you've hired the most experienced real estate agent.

And that's where Morrision Singleton comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get an exact listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market. Contact us today.

In addition to helping you decide on a realistic price to sell so your home will appeal to potential buyers, an efficient appraisal from Morrision Singleton can:
  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have found a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's quality inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected quandaries that can cause sales to fold
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people 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 estimated value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract interested buyers, which means you squander time and money and are left with no offers. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home -- and Morrision Singleton can help with that. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Would it help to put in that third bathroom... Should I complete my closet remodel... Practically any project will influence value in some way. But not everything will have an equal impact. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We can step in and help make these decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent on commission will. An appraisal fee from Morrision Singleton is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Morrision Singleton. When it comes to investing in your home and setting a fair sales price, we'll help you make the most financially sound decisions.
