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 much more than they thought, 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. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do 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. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a correct listing price for your home in today's changing market.

If you're working with an agent to list your home, then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes similar homes for sale in your town. 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 standard process.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where Allatoona Appraisal comes 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 comp sales and an accurate description of your home's features.

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

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's condition inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unknown quandaries that can cause sales to deteriorate
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your property. Ask yourself "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I complete my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen may improve the appeal of a home, but be sure to figure out the costs involved before diving in. It may not justify the time and costs involved.

Your fee to us is based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
