Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Walter Lowery Appraisals.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your home, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays a list of sales houses in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where Walter Lowery Appraisals comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get an expert listing price for your home. Contact us today.

In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your home will draw in potential buyers, a qualified appraisal from Walter Lowery Appraisals can:
  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you find a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Make yourself aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unexpected difficulties that can cause sales to fizzle
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from Walter Lowery Appraisals actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. 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. Overpriced homes don't attract potential buyers, which means you squander time and (not to mention) money and still have no offers. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it... Would it help to put in that new bathroom... Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel... Virtually any project will affect value in some way. But each thing affects value differently. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
