Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from 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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a precise listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your house, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your area. It's a customary starting point in 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.

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

That's where we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so 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.

In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will draw in buyers. A professional appraisal from Herrin Appraisal Company can:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find a potential buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown problems that cause negotiations to fizzle
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
