Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact GED Appraisal

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price. Are you working with an agent to sell your house? Quite often you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (CMA) that includes comparable sales houses in your local area. It's a customary starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a crucial (and very logical) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.

In our opinion, however, you might also wish to consider a pre-listing appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - BEFORE putting your home on the market - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where we come in! We'll do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

In today's ever-changing market, using a licensed appraiser is the best way to get a fair listing price for your home. Contact us today.

We're also experienced in assisting you with setting a realistic selling price so your home will interest buyers, a qualified appraisal from GED Appraisal can:
  • Be a an extremely valuable negotiating tool once you find a a prospective buyer
  • Blow away potential buyers with written proof of your house's shape inside and out
  • Eliminate last-minute repair hassles and make yourself aware of problems that might delay a closing
  • Reduce chances of unknown issues that can cause sales to fall through
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the deal will close
A lot of sellers are shocked when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. Others have an inflated opinion of their home's amount of value and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes don't attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. And all the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is still sitting on the market.

Improvements to add value to your home

There are so many important questions to ask yourself before listing your home. Should we paint the entire house before we sell it... Does the fence need replacing... Should I finish my closet remodel... Practically any project has the potential to influence value in some way. But each thing impacts value differently. A kitchen remodel might improve your home's appeal, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.

We'll help you make some of these important decisions. GED Appraisal appraisers have no vested interest in what amount the house sells for, unlike a real estate agent. Your fee to us is based on efforts to complete your report, and not a percentage of the sales price.
