Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Gregory James Company, Inc.

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Gregory James Company, Inc. actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a correct listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your house, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes similar sales houses in your town. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital (and very logical) step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from a professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

And that's where Gregory James Company, Inc. can help you! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Gregory James Company, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have found a prospective buyer
  • Impress potential buyers with written proof of your home's state inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unknown quandaries that cause negotiations to deteriorate
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value to your home

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

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
