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 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 local real estate values.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, the appraisal measures the true market value of your home.

For Sale By Owner?

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 the best price, you need a professional appraisal. You need objective opinions, it's 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 astute asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Be a very helpful bargaining tool when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Prevent the chances of unidentified problems that cause sales to go up in smoke

People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and investing in an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated opinion of the value of their home, by getting an appraisal it 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 rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
