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.

A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their home is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from Giles Appraisal Group, Inc. 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 over-inflated opinion of their home's amount of value to decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house is sitting still on the market.

In today's fluctuating market, hiring a licensed appraiser is the #1 way to get a factual listing price for your home.

Are you working with an agent to list your property? Then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable sales in your town. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial step if your main objectives are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

But even if you're working with the most experienced real estate agent, it's definitely in your best interest to have a third-party's objective opinion before you sign the Listing Agreement.

And that's where Giles Appraisal Group, Inc. comes in! We'll do 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 home's features.

In addition to helping you set a realistic price to sell so your home will appeal to potential buyers. A qualified appraisal from Giles Appraisal Group, Inc. can:

  • Provide tips to help you negotiate once you have found an interested buyer
  • Impress buyers with written proof of your home's state inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles
  • Decrease the chances of unknown issues that cause negotiations to break down
  • Cut out the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

In addition to "how much?", there may be other equally important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to complete my closet remodel?" You may not realize it, but everything we do to our houses can affect their value. Unfortunately, not all of them have an equal affect. While a kitchen remodel may improve your home's appeal, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify the expenses.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. An appraiser has no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Our appraisal fees are based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
