Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Witherell & Associates, Inc.
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Witherell & Associates actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

Are you working with an agent to sell your house? Quite often you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays comparable sale homes in your area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a standard process.
