Prelist : There are two major advantages of a pre-list appraisal

1. You Look Better to your Seller - When you are being interviewed by a seller to become their agent to sell their property, a pre-list appraisal on their home show you are not only interested in selling their property, it also shows you KNOW the value of the home.

2. You Completely Avoid Rebuttal - By having baseline numbers, your risk of having property not appraised is dramatically lower than your competitor. Avoid potential risk of your property not coming into value issues that can arise while in escrow. The last thing you want is for your property to be in escrow with an appraisal value below contact price.
