Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact H.M. Hoffman & Company

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 expected, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

In today's changing market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a solid listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to list your home, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes competing sale homes in your local area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement, even if you're working with an experienced agent.
