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 more than they estimated, 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. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still sitting 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.

With today's ever-changing market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get an accurate listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to list your house? Quite often they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes similar homes for sale in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital (and very logical) step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement, even if you've hired an experienced agent.

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

In addition to helping you decide on a realistic price to sell so your house will attract potential buyers. A skillful appraisal from Gregory James Company, Inc. can:

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you find a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown difficulties that cause negotiations to fall through
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the expenses involved.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Appraisers have no vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
