Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Hardesty Appraisals, LLC

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 list your property, more than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays similar sales in your local area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you have hired the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Hardesty Appraisals, LLC comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent 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 fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a fair listing price for your home. Contact us today.

An efficient appraisal from Hardesty Appraisals, LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers, and we'll also:
  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you find a potential 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 unknown difficulties that cause negotiations to fizzle
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract serious potential buyers, which means you throw away time and (not to mention) money and are left with no offers. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Should we paint the whole house before we sell it... Does the carpet need replacing... Should I complete my closet remodel... Practically any project will affect value in some way. Unfortunately, not all of them have an effect commensurate with their cost. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

We can step in and help you make these decisions. Hardesty Appraisals, LLC appraisers have no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. An appraisal fee from Hardesty Appraisals, LLC is based on our efforts to finalize your report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. A professional appraisal from Hardesty Appraisals, LLC will help homeowners like you make the best-informed decisions when it comes to investments to add value and setting a fair sales price.
