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.

A lot of sellers are shocked 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 receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. Others have an over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of 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 home sits on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home sits on the market.

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

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your property, then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of sales houses in your town. It's a good starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This step is crucial if you're going to minimize the home's time on the market and maximize your profit.

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

That's where we come in! We'll 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".

  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
