Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal 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 more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. 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. An overpriced house will not attract interested 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 its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

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

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your property, more than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected sales in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very logical) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

Even if you've been working with the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.

That's where we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

A qualified appraisal from Gregory James Company, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will charm potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's state inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Cut down the chances of unknown problems that can cause your sale to break down
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. 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 complete the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
