Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact T.R. Moore & Associates, Inc.

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 includes a list of sales in your town. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

In our opinion, though, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where T.R. Moore & Associates, Inc. comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a true listing price for your home in today's changing market. Contact us today.

An expert appraisal from T.R. Moore & Associates, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will entice buyers, and we'll also:
  • Be a an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you find a potential buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unknown headaches that can cause sales to crumble
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

Home improvements that add value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Should I finish my kitchen remodel... Nearly any project can affect value in some way. But each thing impacts marketability differently. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are not a percentage of the sales price -- our fees are based on efforts to complete the report. So please consider ordering an appraisal from T.R. Moore & Associates, Inc.. When it comes to investing in your house and setting a fair sales price, we'll help homeowners like you make the smartest decisions.
