Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Gregory James Company, Inc.
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is much more than they had planned, so investing in an appraisal from Gregory James Company, Inc. actually allowed these people 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 amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property will not attract interested buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.
With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely appoint a licensed appraiser to get a sharp listing price for your home.Contact us
Working with a real estate agent to sell your home? More than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays comparable homes for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market, this is a vital step.
Even if you have hired the most expert real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement.
That's where we come in! We'll do 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".
An expert 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:
Improvements to add value
There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your property. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.
