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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, 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. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's price value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get an accurate listing price for your home in today's fluctuating market.

Are you working with an agent to list your home? Then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays comparable houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market, this is a really important step.

Even if you're working with an expert real estate agent , it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Allatoona Appraisal can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

Allatoona Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will bring in potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you find 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 that might delay a closing
  • Cut down the chances of unknown issues that can cause your sale to flop
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal can be underwritten.

Improvements to add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. 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 new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We'll step in and help make these important decisions. Allatoona Appraisal appraisers have no vested interest in what amount your house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
