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. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless the homeowner makes a career out of studying real estate values, like a professional appraiser does, it's difficult for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Instead, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

For Sale By Owner?

More and more GA homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and to get the most you can, you need a expert appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's 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 realistic asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Alert you of problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is higher than they originally thought. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they originally expected. Others have an an overestimated 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 allowing them to quickly sell it instead of waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
