A pre-listing appraisal is a comprehensive appraisal you order before you list your property for sale. It’s different from a buyer’s appraisal, which is usually ordered after an offer is accepted or an informal deal is made.
It’s usually a good idea to get a pre-listing appraisal if you want to boost the sales price of your property. Whether you plan to sell a single-family home, a commercial property, or something else, the right pre-listing appraisal will maximize your profits and allow you to list your home for a fair price without having to justify the cost.
It can be very difficult to estimate the value of real estate, even if you have some experience in this industry. Licensed, professional experts, such as MHS Appraisal, have the tools and experience to appraise your property accurately and comprehensively, ensuring that you can list it for a competitive price that will receive offers sooner rather than later.
When you hire MHS Appraisal, our appraisal report will include key information like:
- The main features or property information for your real estate
- Comparable home sales data, obtained by looking at recent home sale prices in your area between the last three and six months
- Photos from a detailed inspection, which can also be used for listing your home and attracting prospective buyers
In addition, ordering a pre-listing appraisal can help you push back against lowball offers or claims that you’ve listed your property for too high a price. Don’t list your home without knowing exactly how much it’s worth. Contact MHS Appraisal today to see how we can help.
