Home Listing Appraisal

Shreveport - Bossier City LA

Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Devereux Appraisal Company, LLC.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Working with an agent to list your home? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays similar sale homes in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced agent, it's definitely in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Devereux Appraisal Company, LLC comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your 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".
