Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact Allatoona AppraisalAre you working with a real estate agent to list your property? Quite often you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes comparable sales houses in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a really important (and very common) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.
In our opinion, though, you might also wish to consider an appraisal from a licensed professional who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.
We're also experienced in helping you set a realistic price to sell so your house will charm buyers, an expert appraisal from Allatoona Appraisal can:
Improvements that add value to your homeIn addition to "how much?", there may be more important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home. Would it be better to paint the entire house before we sell it... Does the fence need replacing... Should I complete my closet remodel... Practically any project will affect value in some way. But, not all of them have an impact commensurate with their cost. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.
We'll help you make some of these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike an agent. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price. So please consider ordering an appraisal from Allatoona Appraisal. When it comes to investing in your house and deciding on a fair price to sell at, we'll help homeowners make the smartest decisions.
