Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Mary Kay Moloney.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your property? Quite often they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable sales houses in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

Even if you are working with an experienced agent, it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Mary Kay Moloney comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a true listing price for your home in today's evolving market. Contact us today.

Mary Kay Moloney can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will appeal to potential buyers, and we can also:
  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have found a a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make yourself aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected obstacles that cause negotiations to fall through
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. 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 throw away time and money and still have no prospects for buying your home. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage.

Improvements to add value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your house. Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it... Is now the time to add a deck... Should I finish my kitchen remodel... Nearly any project can affect value in some way. But each thing impacts value differently. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the expenses involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent on commission will. An appraisal fee from Mary Kay Moloney is based on our efforts to finalize your report, and are not a percentage of the sales price. A professional appraisal from Mary Kay Moloney helps homeowners like you make the sharpest decisions on investments to add value and settling on a smart sales price.
