Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Darrel Clark & Associates, 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 home, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays competing houses for sale in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market, this is a vital step.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement, even if you've been working with the most experienced agent.

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

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a true listing price for your home in today's adapting market. Contact us today.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Darrel Clark & Associates, Inc. actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious buyers, which means you waste time and money and still have no prospects for buying your home. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

Improvements that add value to your home

Darrel Clark & Associates, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel... Virtually any project will influence value in some way. But each thing affects marketability differently. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.

Darrel Clark & Associates, Inc. can help you with these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price -- your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report. When it comes to investing in your house and settling on a fair sales price, a professional appraisal from Darrel Clark & Associates, Inc. helps you make the best decisions.
