Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Gregory James Company, Inc..

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays 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 the nuances of real estate market forces.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, an appraisal assesses 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 to get the most you can, you need a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, we're human too, we understand its difficult hard to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will explain to you what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

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

  • Be a very helpful negotiating tool while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might stall a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unrevealed problems that cause sales to backslide

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 investing in a professional appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they thought they would get. Others have an an exaggerated assessment of the value of 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 waiting 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
