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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Herrin Appraisal Company actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much 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. 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 home is sitting still on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a skillful listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your property? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing sale homes in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very logical) step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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

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

A qualified appraisal from Herrin Appraisal Company can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have a prospective buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your house's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unexpected problems that can cause your sale to fold
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements to add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your house. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them 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 your expenses.

Herrin Appraisal Company can help you with 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 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 — your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report.
