Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Truex Appraisal Services, LLC

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 list your home? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays a list of houses for sale in your area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize the time your house is listed. 


However, it's definitely in your best interest to have an independent third-party's objective opinion before signing the Listing Agreement, even if you're working with an experienced agent.

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

Using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get an expert listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market. Contact us today.

We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will interest buyers, a professional appraisal from Truex Appraisal Services, LLC can:
  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you find a potential buyer

  • Make yourself aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown complications that can cause your sale to fizzle

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us 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 price value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you waste time and money and are left with no offers. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your property. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.
