Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Creekside Appraisal
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them 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. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your home, more than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays selected sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit.
But even if you are working with the most accomplished agent, it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before signing the Listing Agreement.
And that's where Creekside Appraisal can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.
Creekside Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in buyers, and we can also:
