Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Gregory James Company, Inc..
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.
In today's evolving market, using a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a skillful listing price for your home.Contact us
If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your home, more than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected homes for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a vital step.
However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign a Listing Agreement, even if you have hired the most experienced real estate agent.
And that's where Gregory James Company, Inc. can help you! We can 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".

Upgrades that improve your home's value
In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.
