Putting a house on the market in or near Polk County? Contact Gregory James Company, Inc. and make sure you're setting the price right.

If you're planning on selling your home soon, a professional appraisal is a must. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it's worth the money in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

This isn't a discussion of how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you'd like to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on the true market value of your home.

Selling on your own?

Quite a few GA homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, quickly and for the best price, what you need is a qualified appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it's difficult to be objective about your own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a astute asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Give you an advantage while bargaining while speaking with a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of problems and get rid of any overlooked repairs hassles that might stall a closing
  • Prevent the odds of unidentified problems that cause sales to flop

It can be surprising to people when they find out that their home's value is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they originally expected. Others have an an inflated opinion of their home's value, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than gathering dust on the market for months. An overpriced home rarely attracts buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, wasting valuable time, money, and efforts.
