Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Gregory James Company, Inc..
Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these sellers to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's estimated value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for 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. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.
In today's adapting market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a factual listing price for your home.Contact us
If you're working with a real estate agent to list your house, then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market.

Improvements that add value to your home
There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.
We'll help you make some of these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent.
