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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is much more than they thought, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers 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 value to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home won't 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 sitting on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a fair 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 provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that displays a list of sale homes in your local area. It's a customary starting point when 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 logical move.

Even if you've hired the most experienced real estate 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 Allatoona Appraisal comes in! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Allatoona Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue potential buyers, and we can also:

  • Be a very valuable negotiating tool once you have an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's shape inside and out to blow away potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems
  • Cut down the chances of unexpected disputes that can cause sales to break down
  • Do away with waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements to add value

Allatoona Appraisal can help you answer the many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property. Questions like "Should we paint the outside of the house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it may not justify the costs you'd pay.

Allatoona Appraisal can help you with these decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
