Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact GDB Appraisal Services, Inc
So many people are blown away when they find out that the market value of their home is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal actually allowed these sellers to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth a lot more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract serious buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still on the market is another month you have to pay the mortgage. And in the meantime, you're stuck paying the mortgage while your home is sitting still on the market.
In today's ever-changing market, using a licensed appraiser is the number one way to get an accurate listing price for your home.Contact us today
If you're working with an agent to sell your property, more than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays a list of homes for sale in your area. It's a good starting point in determining your home's listing price. This is a vital (and very common) step if your intentions are to maximize profit and minimize your time on the market.
In our opinion, however, you should also get an appraisal from someone who's sole occupation is to analyze real estate - PRIOR to listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.
That's where GDB Appraisal Services, Inc comes in! We can do a pre-listing appraisal so you and your agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".
