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

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in a professional appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's hard for them to understand the nuances of local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Instead, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

Need help setting a price when selling yourself?

Quite a few GA homeowners are choosing 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 professional appraisal. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very difficult to be objective about your 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 sensible selling price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very beneficial bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of your home's condition inside and out
  • Call attention to any issues and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help prevent the odds of hidden problems that cause sales to flop

People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an inflated impression 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 rather than sitting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
