Pre-Listing Appraisal

Real Estate agents provide comparative market analysis (or CMA) for comparable houses sold and for sale in your area which is customary to determine your home’s listing price. Of course, your goals are to maximize profit and minimize the days on market.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

That's where Appraisal Resource Group LLC (ARG) comes in! We can perform 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".

ARG is also experienced in helping you decide on a realistic price to sell to your house. A qualified appraisal from ARG will draw in buyers:

  • Can be extremely valuable negotiating tool for the potential buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your house's market value
  • Cut down the chances of unknown problems that can cause your sale to crumble
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten

So many people really don’t know what their house is worth. Is your home worth less than you think or more than you think? Do you want to sell and get the price you deserve within a reasonable amount of time? Expectations and reality are, in the current market, not always the same. Investing in an appraisal from ARG will draw you back to reality to help you decide on a realistic price for your home in order for it to sell.

Don’t squander time and (not to mention) money with an overpriced home when you’re stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market with no offers.

An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. An appraisal fee from ARG is based on our efforts to complete the report, and is not a percentage of your home's sale price. When it comes to investing in your house and deciding on a fair sales price, a professional appraisal from us will help homeowners make the decisions.
