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 had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, 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. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is sitting still on the market.

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

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your home? More than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or a CMA) that displays similar sale homes in your area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the house's time on the market.

Even if you've hired the most experienced agent, it's in your best interest to also have a third-party's objective opinion of value before you sign the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Allatoona Appraisal can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both 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 interest potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you find a prospective buyer
  • Wow potential 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
  • Decrease the chances of unknown complications that cause negotiations to break down
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements that add value to your home

Allatoona Appraisal can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. You should ask yourself questions like "Would it be better to paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to 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. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

Need help making some of these important decisions? We're here for you. Unlike a real estate agent, an appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of your home's sale price.
