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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious 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 the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

In today's changing market, appointing a licensed appraiser is the best way to get an expert listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to list your property, more than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays a list of sales in your area. It's a good starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.
