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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's estimated value to decide on a realistic price for 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. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

In today's evolving market, using a licensed appraiser is the top way to get a true listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to sell your house? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes a list of sale homes in your town. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

In our opinion, however, you should also get an appraisal from someone who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate 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".

We're also experienced in assisting you with setting a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue buyers. A professional appraisal from Allatoona Appraisal can:

  • Provide expert tips to help you negotiate once you have found an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's shape inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unknown headaches that cause negotiations to crumble
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.
