Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Gregory James Company, Inc.
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.
In today's evolving market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get an exact listing price for your home.Contact us today
If you're working with a real estate agent to list your property, then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing houses for sale in your town. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a standard process.
In our opinion, however, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.
And that's where Gregory James Company, Inc. comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".
A professional appraisal from Gregory James Company, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue buyers, and we'll also:
Improvements to add value
In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it may not justify the expenses involved.
We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
