Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Coulton Company Appraisals LLC
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them 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 value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract serious potential 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 on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.
In today's ever-changing market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a factual listing price for your home.Contact us today
Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your property? Quite often they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays a list of sales in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market, this is a really important step.
Even if you've been working with the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement.
That's where we come in! We'll perform 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 home's features.

Upgrades that improve your home's value
In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the expenses involved.
