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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from JTH Appraisals actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a fair listing price for your home in today's changing market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your house, then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays similar sale homes 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.

But even if you've hired an expert real estate agent , it's in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where JTH Appraisals comes in! We'll 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 JTH Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have found an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Reduce chances of unexpected predicaments that can cause your sale to deteriorate
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

JTH Appraisals can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Ask yourself "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. JTH Appraisals appraisers have no vested interest in the amount the home sells for, unlike an agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
