Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Marie C. Wentling, MA Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Marie C. Wentling, MA Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.
With today's evolving market conditions, an unbiased, professional appraisal from a certified real estate appraiser will help you establish a listing price for your home.Contact us
If you're working with an agent to list your home, more than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes competing houses for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get the most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a natural process.
Even if you are working with an accomplished agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement.
That's where Marie C. Wentling, MA Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

Upgrades that improve your home's value
There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house There are many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home -- and Marie C. Wentling, MA Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser can help with that. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.
Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price. A professional appraisal from Marie C. Wentling, MA Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser helps homeowners make the sharpest decisions on investing in their home and setting a fair sale price.
