Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Shepard Appraisal Group, LLC.

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

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in an appraisal from Shepard Appraisal Group, LLC actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property won't attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a correct listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your house, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable homes for sale in your area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

But even if you are working with an accomplished real estate agent , it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

That's where Shepard Appraisal Group, LLC comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Shepard Appraisal Group, LLC can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's condition inside and out to impress buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unknown difficulties that cause negotiations to flop
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Ask yourself "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll step in and help make these decisions. 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 the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.

Our fees are not a percentage of your home's sale price — your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report.
