Getting an appraisal from Gregory James Company, Inc. before putting your Atlanta home on the market saves you time and money.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to understand local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Instead, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

Selling on your own?

More and more GA homeowners are making the decision to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the assistance of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and for top dollar, what you need is a qualified appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very difficult to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a astute selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to deteriorate

People are surprised when they find out the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they thought they would get. Alternatively, some people have an inflated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to set a more reasonable price their home in order for it to sell quickly instead of sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
