Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact CMJ Appraisals & Investments LLC
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from CMJ Appraisals & Investments LLC 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 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 do not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.
With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a proper listing price for your home.Contact us today
If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your house, more than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes a list of sales houses in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market.
In our opinion, though, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.
And that's where CMJ Appraisals & Investments LLC comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Improvements to add value to your home
There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your house. Questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet 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. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.
We'll help you make some of these decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
