Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from JTC Valuations

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 home is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from JTC Valuations actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

In today's changing market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a proper listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to sell your home? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays competing sales houses in your area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market, this is a crucial step.

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

And that's where JTC Valuations comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

We're also experienced in helping you decide on a realistic price to sell so your home will appeal to buyers. An expert appraisal from JTC Valuations can:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Reduce chances of unknown obstacles that can cause sales to deteriorate
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements that add value to your home

JTC Valuations can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen 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. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We can step in and help make these important decisions. JTC Valuations appraisers have no vested interest in what amount your house sells for, unlike an agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
