Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact JTH Appraisals

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 house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from JTH Appraisals actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get an exact listing price for your home in today's changing market.

Working with an agent to sell your house? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing sales houses in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before signing a Listing Agreement.

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

JTH Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will draw in potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown disputes that cause the process to deteriorate
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I 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 might 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.

Our fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
