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 thought, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of home sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. An overpriced property 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 on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. In the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your property sits on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a precise listing price for your home in today's evolving market.

Are you working with a real estate agent to list 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 in deciding your home's listing price. This step is really important if you're going to maximize your profit and minimize the home's time on the market.

In our opinion, however, you should also get a pre-listing appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

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

A knowledgeable appraisal from Giles Appraisal Group, Inc. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will interest buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide expert advice when negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's condition inside and out to impress potential buyers
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make you aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Reduce chances of unexpected disputes that can cause sales to fizzle
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your home. Ask yourself "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?" Everything we do to our houses have an effect on their value. But not everything will have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it might not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

We'll help you make some of these decisions. Giles Appraisal Group, Inc. appraisers have no vested interest in what amount the home sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to finalize the report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
