Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Terry Brigham, SRA & Co., Inc..

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. If you're working with An agent to sell your home, more than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays selected sales houses in your local area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize your home's time on the market, this is a really important step.

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

And that's where Terry Brigham, SRA & Co., Inc. comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get an exact listing price for your home. Contact us today.

In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell so your house will intrigue potential buyers, a skillful appraisal from Terry Brigham, SRA & Co., Inc. can:
  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you find a potential buyer

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious potential buyers, which means you waste time and money and are left with no prospects for buying your home. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

Improvements to add value

When it comes to investing in your house and setting a fair sales price, we'll help you make the smartest decisions.
