Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Allatoona Appraisal

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'd 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. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's price value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

With today's fluctuating market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a correct listing price for your home.

Working with a real estate agent to sell your property? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes competing homes for sale in your town. It's a customary starting point in 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.

However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement, even if you've hired an experienced agent.

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

We're also experienced in assisting you with setting a realistic selling price so your home will attract buyers. A knowledgeable appraisal from Allatoona Appraisal can:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have found a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Reduce chances of unexpected issues that can cause your sale to fold
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your home. Questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my kitchen remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. Unlike an agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
