Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Deer Creek Appraisals

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

Many people are surprised 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 people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract 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. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a correct listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.

Are you working with an agent to list your property? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of homes for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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

And that's where Deer Creek Appraisals can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Deer Creek Appraisals can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will interest buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have a prospective buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unexpected issues that can cause your sale to flop
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from Deer Creek Appraisals is based on our efforts to finalize your report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — our fees are based on efforts to complete your report. When it comes to investing in your home and deciding on a fair sales price, a professional appraisal from us will help you make the sharpest decisions.
