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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Allatoona Appraisal actually allowed these people 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 estimated value and an appraisal helped them to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract serious 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 property sits on the market.

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

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your property, more than likely, you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays competing sale homes in your area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a standard move.

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

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

  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay your closing
