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.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these people to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract 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 all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the perfect way to get an accurate listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

If you're working with a real estate agent to sell your home, more than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes similar sales houses in your area. It's a good starting point in deciding your home's listing price. This step is vital if you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit.

In our opinion, though, you should also get an appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

And that's where Giles Appraisal Group, Inc. can help you! We can 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".

In addition to helping you set a realistic selling price so your house will interest buyers. An efficient appraisal from Giles Appraisal Group, Inc. can:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have found an interested buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's condition inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected difficulties that cause the process to deteriorate
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the deal will close.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions you should ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", before listing your home. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that third bathroom?", "Should I finish my closet remodel?" Many things which we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But, not all of them have an equal affect. Remodeling your kitchen might improve your home's appeal, but be sure to figure out your costs before diving in. It might not justify the time and costs involved.

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