Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Giles Appraisal Group, Inc..

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 home is much more than they had planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an over-inflated opinion of their home's value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced home will not attract interested 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 its mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property is still sitting on the market.

Hiring a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get a precise listing price for your home in today's ever-changing market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to list your property, more than likely, they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays similar homes for sale in your local area. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. This is a vital step if your interests are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

But even if you've been working with the most expert real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value prior to signing a Listing Agreement.

And that's where Giles Appraisal Group, Inc. can help you! We'll perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

In addition to assisting you with setting a realistic price to sell so your home will interest potential buyers. An expert appraisal from Giles Appraisal Group, Inc. can:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have found an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's shape inside and out to wow potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Decrease the chances of unknown difficulties that cause negotiations to break down
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal can be underwritten.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other important questions to ask yourself before listing your house. Questions like "Should we paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Everything we do to our houses can affect their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. A kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the expenses involved.

Our fees are based on efforts to complete the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
