Pre-Listing Appraisal Services 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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they expected, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. An appraisal helps those who have an inflated opinion of their home's price value 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. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is still sitting on the market.

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

Are you working with an agent to list your home? Then you can expect them to give you a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes a list of sales in your area. It's a customary starting point when determining 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 natural move.

But even if you've hired an expert agent , it's in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion of value prior to signing the 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 both have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

Upgrades that improve your home's value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your property There are many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home -- and Giles Appraisal Group, Inc. can help with that.
