Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Curiel Appraisal Service

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 a real estate agent to list your home? More than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays comparable sale homes in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a vital step.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal 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 realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you waste time and (not to mention) money and still have no prospects for buying your home. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.
