Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact 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 home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your house sits on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.

With today's adapting market conditions, you should definitely use a licensed appraiser to get a skillful listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to list your property? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes similar houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a logical move.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

A skillful appraisal from Gregory James Company, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will attract potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's quality inside and out
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unknown complications that cause negotiations to go up in smoke
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements that add value to your home

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your house. Ask yourself "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.
