Pre-Listing appraisals from Mike Surles RE, LLC.
Working with a real estate agent to list your property? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes similar sale homes in your area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit.
Even if you've hired the most experienced real estate agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement.
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 an pre-listing appraisal from Mike Surles RE, LLC actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's price 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 you throw away time and (not to mention) money and still have no offers. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.
