Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Mike Sherfey Appraisals, LLC

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Working with a real estate agent to list your home? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes competing sales in your area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a crucial step.

Even if you have hired an accomplished real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Mike Sherfey Appraisals, LLC comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a true listing price for your home. Contact us today.

A lot of sellers are shocked 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 actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract buyers, which means you waste time and (not to mention) money and still have no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Improvements to add value to your home

Mike Sherfey Appraisals, LLC can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Would it help to put in that third bathroom... Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel... Nearly any project can influence value in some way. But not everything will have an equal impact. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the expenses involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent on commission will. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price -- our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Mike Sherfey Appraisals, LLC. When it comes to investing in your house and setting a fair sale price, we'll help you make the best decisions.
