Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Gregory James Company, Inc. will ensure you get it right.

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless a homeowner studies real estate values on a day to day basis, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to get a handle on real estate market forces.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

For Sale By Owner?

Quite a few GA homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But to do it right, quickly and to get the most you can, what you need is a professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it can be very hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will tell you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a sensible selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to backslide

Folks are sometimes surprised when they find out that the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they expected they would get. Others have an an inflated impression when they put a value on their home, by getting an appraisal it gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
