Have confidence in your listing price with an appraisal from Gant Patrick R.E..

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is a lot more than they'd planned, so investing in a professional appraisal from us actually allowed them to receive several thousand more dollars than they thought they would when their home was sold. 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 decide on a realistic price for their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes do not attract potential buyers, which means you have wasted time on money and are left with no offers. Each month that your home is still sitting 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 still sitting on the market.

Using a licensed appraiser is the best way to get an accurate listing price for your home in today's changing market.

If you're working with an agent to sell your home, then you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that displays a list of sales houses in your town. It's a customary starting point when deciding your home's listing price. For anyone looking to get most profit out of their house, which includes not having it for sale too long, this is a natural process.

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 - PRIOR to listing your house - even if you're working with an experienced agent.

And that's where Gant Patrick R.E. can help you! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so you and your real estate agent have an accurate description of your home's features and a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comparable sales or "comps".

A knowledgeable appraisal from Gant Patrick R.E. can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will intrigue buyers, and we'll also:

  • Help provide advice when negotiating once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your house's quality inside and out to blow away buyers
  • Eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Reduce chances of unknown predicaments that can cause your sale to fold
  • Eliminate the wait for the buyer's appraisal to have confidence the sale will go through.

Home improvements that add value

There are other important questions to ask yourself, in addition to "how much?", prior to listing your property. You should ask yourself questions like "Should we paint the entire house before we sell it?", "Should I put in that third bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my closet remodel?" Many things that we do to our houses can have an effect on their value. But everything will affect it in a different way. While a kitchen remodel may improve the appeal of a home, it may not add nearly enough to the value to justify your expenses.

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