Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Allstate Appraisal, Inc.

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 a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from Allstate Appraisal, Inc. actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious 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 sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

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

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