Benefits of Pre-Listing Appraisals
Pre-listing appraisals are home appraisals made prior to the house being placed on the market for sale. As a Realtor, it’s always good to do your homework in advance but two main reasons why a pre-listing appraisals are beneficial are:
- You Look Better to your Seller: When you meet a Seller, they will be more likely to sign up with you when you come prepared. Having a pre-listing appraisal in hand shows that you are eager to work, you are committed to the job, and that you are well informed. These are good qualities and Sellers appreciate an Agent who is working on their behalf.
- You Avoid Rebuttals and Valuation Problems: A pre-listing appraisal gives you a baseline value for how much the house is worth. By starting with a solid number, you avoid the risk of having the property valued to be dramatically lower than the asking price. When the house is in escrow and the deal is almost done, the last thing you want is for the property to be appraised lower than the contract price.
