Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact CSCC Appraisal Services, Inc.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your property, then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected sales houses in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

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've been working with the most experienced real estate agent.

That's where we come in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a proper listing price for your home. Contact us today.

CSCC Appraisal Services, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract potential buyers, and we can also:
  • Be a an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you find a a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's condition inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make yourself aware of problems
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected headaches that cause the process to crumble
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from CSCC Appraisal Services, Inc. actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you throw away time and (not to mention) money and still have no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

CSCC Appraisal Services, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Should we paint the whole house before we sell it... Do I need to complete my closet remodel... Almost any project has the potential to influence value in some way. But not everything will have the same bang for the buck. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll step in and help make these decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent on commission will. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. When it comes to investing in your home and setting a fair sale price, a professional appraisal from CSCC Appraisal Services, Inc. will help homeowners like you make the decisions.
