Pre-Listing Appraisal Services 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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they expected, so investing in an appraisal from Gregory James Company, Inc. actually allowed these sellers 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 price value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a correct listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list your home? Quite often they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays comparable sales houses in your area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market, this is a vital step.

In our opinion, though, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

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

Gregory James Company, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will draw in potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's condition inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unexpected difficulties that can cause sales to fall through
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

Gregory James Company, Inc. can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Gregory James Company, Inc. appraisers have no vested interest in the amount your house sells for, unlike an agent. Our fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
