Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Clearfork Appraisals

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, 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 buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get an exact listing price for your home.
