Pre-Listing Appraisal Services from 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.

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 an appraisal from Allatoona Appraisal actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract interested buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home sits 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 sits on the market.

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

If you're working with an agent to list your property, more than likely, they'll give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays comparable sale homes in your local area. It's a customary starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to minimize your home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

However, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you have been working with the most experienced agent.

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

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have found a potential buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your home's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Reduce chances of unknown difficulties that can cause your sale to fizzle
  • Eliminate 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 you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your property. Ask yourself "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I 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 everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

We'll step in and help you make these decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like an agent do. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
