Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Troy D. Courtney Appraisals, 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 home is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from Troy D. Courtney Appraisals, Inc. actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a solid listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your home? Quite often you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes a list of sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a vital step.

Even if you're working with the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your home. Ask yourself "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?"
