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 home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers 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 will not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a just listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

Are you working with an agent to list your property? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays a list of homes for sale in your local area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize your house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion prior to signing a Listing Agreement, even if you have hired an experienced agent.

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

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

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you find an interested buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's state inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Cut down the chances of unknown disputes that can cause sales to flop
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value to your home

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Ask yourself "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 complete my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
