Listing at the right price is crucial and a professional appraisal from Grantham Appraisal & Realty, Inc. will ensure you get it right.

Selling your home? You would be wise to invest in an appraisal. An appraisal doesn't cost that much and it pays you in the long run! Unless the homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's difficult for them to understand the nuances of their local real estate market.

We are not talking about how much you have invested in your home, or the amount you need to get for it. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on your home's market value.

Selling on your own?

Quite a few GA homeowners are choosing to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent. But if you're going to do it right, with minimal waiting and for the best price, you need a qualified appraiser. It can be very difficult to get objective opinions, it's very difficult to take an objective look at own home because of your emotional attachment to it. We will inform you of what you need to know, not just what you want to hear.

In addition to helping you set a astute selling price so your home will attract buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home inside and out
  • Alert you of issues and get rid of any last-minute repair hassles that might delay a closing
  • Help lower the odds of unknown problems that cause sales to fall through

It can be surprising to people to discover their home's value is much more than they thought. So by taking the first step and spending a little on an appraisal provided the data to support a sale for thousands more than they could have gotten originally. Others have an an exaggerated assessment when they put a value on their home, and an appraisal gave then the assistance they needed in order to realistically price their home allowing them to quickly sell it instead of waiting on the market for months. An overpriced home will not attract buyers, reducing your offers, making closing more difficult, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
