Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Gregory James Company, Inc..

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to fully grasp their local real estate market.

While important, an appraisal is not about how much you've spent buying and improving your home, or how much you want for it. Rather, the appraisal measures how much your home will bring on the open market.

Appraisals are valuable tools for families selling without an agent

An increasing amount of GA homeowners are choosing 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, with minimal waiting and for top dollar, you need a qualified appraiser. You need objective opinions, and we understand that it can be very 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.

In addition to helping you set a realistic asking price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the possibility of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through

It can be surprising to people when they find out that the value of their home is more than they originally believed. So by taking the first step and investing in a professional appraisal allowed them to receive thousands more than they thought they would get. Others have an an overestimated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal helped them to to set a more reasonable 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, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
