Be an informed seller. Get an appraisal from Grantham Appraisal & Realty, Inc..

If you're going to sell your home, you should seriously consider a professional appraisal. Don't think of a professional appraisal as costing money; it pays in the long run! Unless a homeowner spends hours every week on real estate valuation, like an appraiser, it's hard for them to fully grasp local real estate values.

While important, an appraisal is not about the costs of purchasing and upgrading your home, or how much you want to sell it for. Rather, a appraisal provides a professional opinion on how much your home will bring on the open market.

Appraisals are valuable tools for people selling without an agent

Quite a few GA homeowners are deciding to sell their homes FSBO (For Sale By Owner) and foregoing the help of a real estate agent.

Not only can getting a professional appraisal help you set a sensible asking price to attract more potential buyers, a professional appraisal can:

  • Allow you to have the edge while bargaining when you find a potential buyer
  • Put buyers at ease with written proof of the condition of your home's interior and exterior
  • Call attention to any problems and eliminate overlooked repairs hassles that might hold-up a closing
  • Help lower the chances of hidden problems that cause sales to deteriorate

People are surprised when they find out that their home's value is more than they originally believed. So spending a little on a professional appraisal allowed them to get several thousand more than they could have gotten originally. Alternatively, some people have an exaggerated assessment of the value of their home, and an appraisal helped them to to realistically price their home in order for it to sell quickly rather than sitting on the market for months. Selling too high rarely attracts buyers, which means no offers and no closing, which can waste your valuable time and drain your resources while getting nothing done
