Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal 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.

So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in an appraisal from Allatoona Appraisal actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a skillful listing price for your home.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your home, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays selected sales in your area. It's a customary starting point when deciding 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 vital step.

However, it's also advantageous to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement, even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

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

An expert appraisal from Allatoona Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will interest buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have found a prospective 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 quandaries that can cause sales to deteriorate
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.
