Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Herrin Appraisal Company

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 house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting 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 still sitting on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a skillful listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, more than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected sales in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a standard move.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before signing the Listing Agreement, even if you are working with the most experienced real estate agent.

That's where Herrin Appraisal Company comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.
