Need a pre-listing appraisal?
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal actually allowed these people 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 much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.
Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your property? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable sale homes in your area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your house's time on the market.
Even if you've hired the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third party's objective opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.
That's where Capital City Real Estate Group, LLC comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer
Blow away buyers with written proof of your house's condition inside and out
Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
Cut down the chances of unknown issues that can cause your sale to deteriorate
Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.
