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 home is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from H.M. Hoffman & Company 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 over-inflated opinion of their home's price value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

In today's ever-changing market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a fair listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your house? Quite often you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your local area. It's a customary starting point in 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 natural move.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you've hired an experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so 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".

An efficient appraisal from H.M. Hoffman & Company can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you find an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's state inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unknown messes that can cause your sale to fizzle
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.
