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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers 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 value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

In today's adapting market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a precise listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to list your home? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays competing sales houses in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market.

Even if you're working with the most expert agent, it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Herrin Appraisal Company can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have found a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected issues that can cause your sale to go up in smoke
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements that add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Herrin Appraisal Company appraisers have no vested interest in the amount your house sells for, unlike an agent. Our fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from Herrin Appraisal Company is based on our efforts to finalize the report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price — our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report. So a professional appraisal from Herrin Appraisal Company will help homeowners make the sharpest decisions on investing in their house and deciding on a fair sale price.
