Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Coker Appraisers, Inc.

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

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal from us 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 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 on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

In today's evolving market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get an accurate listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected sale homes in your area. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement, even if you are working with the most experienced agent.

And that's where Coker Appraisers, Inc. comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic price to sell so your home will attract buyers. A skillful appraisal from Coker Appraisers, Inc. can:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's shape inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unknown difficulties that can cause your sale to deteriorate
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your home. Questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new 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 everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

Coker Appraisers, Inc. will step in and help you make these important decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
