Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Eastern 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. If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your property, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays a list of sale homes in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining 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 logical move.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your property - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where Eastern Appraisal Services, Inc. comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get an expert listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market. Contact us today.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from Eastern Appraisal Services, Inc. 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 over-inflated opinion of their home's value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house will not attract serious buyers, which means you squander time and money and still have no prospects for buying your home. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

Home improvements that add value
