Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Gregory James Company, Inc..
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious potential 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 the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.
Using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a just listing price for your home in today's adapting market.Contact us
Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your property? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes comparable sale homes in your local area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital (and very logical) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.
However, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you're working with the most experienced agent.
And that's where Gregory James Company, Inc. comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your 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".

Improvements to add value to your home
In addition to "how much?", there may be equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete 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. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.
