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 home is a lot more than they expected, 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 much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced house won't attract interested 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 sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely hire a licensed appraiser to get a skillful listing price for your home.

If you're working with an agent to sell your property, then they'll give you a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes selected sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a really important step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

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

That's where Allatoona Appraisal comes in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

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

  • Be an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Blow away buyers with written proof of your home's state inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Reduce chances of unknown headaches that can cause sales to fall through
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your house. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Should I finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. Remodeling your kitchen may improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your expenses before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

Allatoona Appraisal can help you with these important decisions. Appraisers don't have any vested interest in your final selling price, like a real estate agent do. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
