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.

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 from us actually allowed these sellers 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 property will not attract buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your house 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 is still sitting on the market.

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

Are you working with a real estate agent to sell your house? Then they'll provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes selected sales houses in your town. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very logical) step if your goals are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

However, it's also advantageous to have an "objective" third-party's opinion of value before signing the Listing Agreement, even if you are working with the most experienced real estate agent.

That's where Giles Appraisal Group, Inc. comes in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent both have an accurate description of your house's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".
