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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they thought, 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. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a true listing price for your home.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your property? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays a list of homes for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your intentions 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 before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you have hired an experienced real estate agent.

That's where Gregory James Company, Inc. comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

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

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you find an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's shape inside and out to impress buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Reduce chances of unexpected complications that can cause your sale to fall through
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

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?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

We can step in and help make these important decisions. Gregory James Company, Inc. appraisers have no vested interest in what amount your home sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price. An appraisal fee from Gregory James Company, Inc. is based on our efforts to complete your report, and are not a percentage of your home's sale price.
