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 a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them 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 value to realistically price 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. Every month your home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a proper listing price for your home in today's changing market.

Working with an agent to list your property? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes competing sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

But even if you are working with an accomplished real estate agent , it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing a Listing Agreement.

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

  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour and make you aware of problems

Improvements that add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your home. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We can step in and help make these important decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
