Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Nordquist Appraisal LLC

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 more than they estimated, 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. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract serious 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 sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a skillful listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.

If you're working with an agent to list your property, more than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays selected sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market, this is a really important step.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Nordquist Appraisal LLC comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your 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".
