Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Evaluating Property in the MidSouth (EPM)

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Working with an agent to sell your home? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays similar sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

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

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

In today's fluctuating market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a solid listing price for your home. Contact us today.

  • Reduce chances of unexpected issues that can cause your sale to deteriorate
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten
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 a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers 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 realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract interested buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Improvements that add value to your home

Evaluating Property in the MidSouth (EPM) can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Would it help to put in that third bathroom... Should I finish my kitchen remodel... Practically any project can influence value in some way. But each thing affects marketability differently. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. When it comes to investing in your home and settling on a fair sale price, a professional appraisal from Evaluating Property in the MidSouth (EPM) will help you make the wisest decisions.
