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 a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will 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 the mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get a true listing price for your home in today's adapting market.

Working with an agent to list your property? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that includes comparable houses for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point when 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.

But even if you've been working with the most 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 do a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

In addition to assisting you with setting a realistic selling price so your house will entice potential buyers. An efficient appraisal from Allatoona Appraisal can:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have a prospective buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's shape inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Cut down the chances of unknown quandaries that can cause sales to flop
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance 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 house. Ask yourself "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out the expenses involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.
