Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from 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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value 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. Each month that your home is still sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

In today's evolving market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a correct listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to sell your home? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays comparable houses for sale in your town. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you have been working with an experienced real estate agent.
