Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from Thompson Appraisal Services, Inc

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Working with a real estate agent to sell your property? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays similar sales in your town. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, however, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where Thompson Appraisal Services, Inc can help you! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.
